Your child will go on a learning adventure with Spanish instructor and citizen of the world, Teacher Brittany! Beginning with basics (or starting more advanced if your child is already avidly exploring the language), Brittany will introduce concepts and useful phrases through movement, games, and songs. Activities may include learning and singing songs, reading stories, playing familiar games (like Simon Says! and Go Fish!), arts and crafts, and Animal Yoga -- which introduces both animal-inspired yoga poses and the corresponding vocabulary -- ALL in Spanish! Intended to be immersive and fun, Brittany will speak in Spanish throughout the experience to fully surround your children with opportunities for language comprehension and increasing their vocabularies.
Brittany has a Bachelors in Spanish from the University of Oklahoma and has taught the Spanish language to students of all ages for 10 years. She has lived in Spain and Argentina and is fluent in Spanish reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension (including local dialects and styles). A warm and passionate educator, Brittany loves to bring language and culture into her educational experiences, just as much as she loves to layer movement (yoga especially!), song, and games into her lessons, to inspire the hearts and minds of students.
Brittany also became a certified Yoga Instructor in 2016, having completed a 200-hour teacher training program in Fort Collins, Colorado. She's taught yoga to all ages — toddlers to senior citizens! — and has an extensive background in mindfulness training. She worked with the Denver-based, non-profit, Be Mindful, to teach emotional awareness, the science of the brain, and how to energize and calm down with breath-work in schools, after school programs, and to homeless adults.
Brittany is vaccinated against COVID-19.
