Monica Palacios


Spanish Teacher

Teaching Spanish in a exciting, creative and dynamic way for our primary students. Singing, playing, reading stories and sharing the Latin culture is what you will see in her classes.

I recently moved to the United States from Colombia. I graduated with a degree in foreign languages and have a specialization in education management. I have taught languages for 5 years in elementary schools which has made me love my profession even more. I love being around kids, you can learn so much from them and have unforgettable experiences. I speak three languages Spanish, English and French. I am a very energetic, creative and positive person that loves the outdoors. I recently did a road trip in an adventure van through Utah and visited 4 National parks. I did the most dangerous and scariest hike in the USA known as Angels Landing in Zion National Park and it was incredible! I also enjoy to Bike, kayak, yoga, basketball and rock climbing.
