Marcela first joined the Greenspring Montessori School community as a parent. After a year volunteering at school events, Marcela joined us as the Spanish Enrichment Guide. In 2018, Marcela stepped up to the role of Dual Language Coordinator as well, overseeing our Toddler, Children’s House, and Lower Elementary Dual Langauge Programs.
Marcela grew up in Colombia, giving her a rich understanding of South American culture. She moved to the United States in 2008 and has since lived in Florida, Arizona, Colombia, and now Maryland.
Marcela took the Summer Assistants Course at Washington Montessori Institute in 2017. She is excited about continuing spreading the love for her native language and hispanic heritage.
