Spanish Songs for Your Bilingual Children

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Going back to work full-time when my son was barely 8-months-old had not been easy, but I thought we’d won the lottery when we met our nanny and at least I was able to work knowing that both my children were in good and loving hands.

NPR Takes a Look at Bilingual Immersion Schools

Posted by: | 5 Comments

I lived in Miami for almost 19 years before moving to Denver five years ago. While I had heard of several bilingual immersion schools in the area, Coral Way K-8 Center was not one of them. I guess some stuff only becomes important once you become a mom.
