Founder Director and Guide in this adventure
Hola, I am a local mother of two wonderful daughters 13 and 15... They have been my best teachers and the two people who most challenge me to be a better mom, person, and professional every day.
I am also a nature lover, a passionate teacher. I started my journey back in the 90's, in México, volunteering as a Literacy Teacher. On the side, I completed my degree and participated in research projects aimed at educational, cultural, and environmental issues, in México and Latin America. I moved to Santa Cruz 17 years ago and since then I have served dozens of families, either as a Spanish tutor, nature educator, or childcare provider. I love getting kids outside to experience all the amazing emotional, physical, and mental benefits that nature provides, and I love what bilingualism brings to our being, brain, communities, and society. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, and hiking barefoot with my daughters and dog Luna.
