Learning another language is a difficult task that requires lots of support by families and educators, let’s answer some questions you may have about second language acquisition and the ways we can support our students and families learning another language.


I have taught Pre-k general and bilingual students for 16 years at different school districts in San Antonio, Tx including a charter school.

Well-planned songs and smooth transitions throughout the day will enhance teaching and save teachers time. Students will be able to learn difficult concepts through music and have fun while doing it.
