Mariana | Sellwood Site Director
Why do you think a bilingual education is important for young children?
Developing a bilingual education at a young age has given me numerous advantages; I am able to clearly communicate with people from different cultures, I can aid conversation and bridge connections through translation, and I have the skills to teach the upcoming generation the same expertise. A bilingual education gives children a leg up in linguistic, cognitive, and social intelligence. This knowledge can encourage your child to appreciate different cultures and to be a natural communicator; and it is a practical tool that they will value for the rest of their lives.
What genuinely makes my days are the moments when students peek through my office door to wish me good morning or to give me a quick hug. I feel successful in continuing these mentor-mentee relationships while serving as Site Director.
