  • How/Why is your work at BB meaningful to you: I think that what Bilingual Birdies offers is such a valuable experience for both kids and teachers. I love working with kids — they remind me of the simple things in life, and that we are here to create and enjoy every minute of the day.
  • Favorite adult band/singer in the language you teach: Julia Zenko, Fito Paez and Diego Torres
  • Your special way of getting the children’s attention or unique teaching technique: Making everything I have to say The Most Amazing and Fascinating Thing in the world!
  • One reason why you think learning a foreign language is important at a young age: Learning multiple languages and cultures is a very enriching experience that helps open doors in for future communication. Stimulating this activity at a young age is so important and doing it through artistic methods is fascinating and so rewarding.
