Mrs. Claudia was born and raised in Chile, where she graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Communication. Shortly after college, she moved to the United States to begin a new chapter in her life. In Maryland, Mrs. Claudia taught Spanish to homeschooled children and worked as a private tutor, while obtaining her Early Childhood Education Certification from the State of Maryland. She then worked for three years as a Lead Teacher in a Spanish Immersion program in Chevy Chase before finding her home at Whole Kids Academy. Claudia enjoys spending time with her loving husband and most adorable and creative daughter, Celeste. She also enjoys sewing, gardening, painting and reading with Celeste. Claudia’s favorite children’s book is Mae Among the Stars because it is a beautiful story that children can easily relate to, giving them confidence to live their dreams.
At WKA, Claudia has thrived since joining our team in 2017 as a Lead Pre-K teacher, before transitioning into her role as the Director of our Aventuras program. Claudia’s leadership and continued contributions to the Aventuras After School Enrichment and Aventuras Summer programs ensure the success in growing the depth and quality of our children’s Spanish language education.
