As we wrap up our first summer camp this week, let’s take a look back at what we’ve learned about animals! Of particular note, our dramatic play veterinarian’s office was a huge hit.
Summer Camp #2 begins next week with our emphasis on insects. This two week camp will introduce students to spiders, bees, butterflies, ants and worms.
Openings available for students aged 3-8 years old in our morning or afternoon session. Choose 2, 3 or 5 days per week. Contact us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Elvira Marciano, the newest addition to our team! Ms. Elvira will be teaching at Aventuras during our summer program and we are so happy to have her. She comes to us with valuable education and experience which she can pass on to our little ones. Get to know her here in her own words:
I’m a native Spanish speaker originally from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. I speak three languages being: Spanish, English, and Q’anjobal (one of the 21 Mayan languages spoken in my country). I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Education and Human Sciences last December 2018. As part of my preparation to become a Spanish teacher, I completed my professional practicum at a primary school in Spain and my student teaching at an American school in Belgium. During the last three months, I have been teaching Spanish at Yutan High School, Nebraska.
One of the things I have learned from myself after living in different places, is my interest in experiencing and learning from different cultures. I also found out that language can play a major role when experiencing those cultures. When we have the ability to communicate with people different from us, we are more likely to understand and learn from them. I strongly believe that introducing multiple languages to children not only opens up numerous opportunities for them in the long run, but it also helps their cognitive development. For these reasons, I’m passionate about working with young people.
During my spare time, I like to spend time with family and friends, play football (soccer), dance, and try to pass French I.
