Bienvenidos a su casa!

My name is Mishelle, welcome to my little but mighty Spanish corner! My passion is to share my love, knowledge and expertise in  human development and language acquisition as an educator and as a parent. Montessori Spanish Familia is a bilingual space that offers a warm, understanding and kind community for children, parents, teachers and schools alike. 


For over 10 years I have had the honor to work at model AMI Montessori schools in Chicago, Santa Barbara and the Bay Area developing Spanish programs from the ground up in order to meet each communities unique needs successfully. I am thrilled to be opening my very own Montessori bilingual community programs. I’ve devoted the past decade to learning and doing! Using my diverse background in psychology, international studies, Montessori, second-language acquisition, special education and positive-discipline. I have also traveled extensively through Spanish-speaking countries, including Spain, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico, Uruguay and Colombia, where I lived until I was 18 years old.


In my programs we are all seen as individuals with strengths and weaknesses and we thrive to be our bests selves in a thoughtfully and purposefully designed environment where we can learn and grow and work towards achieving our fullest potential. Montessori Spanish Familia celebrates diversity and inclusion, this is a place in which the “golden rule” is alive and well. Kindness is the name of the game! I’m a live long learner and instill love and passion in everything I do. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at for more information about our dynamic programs and services.
