Ms Nellie joined Cosmic in August 2012, as a directress in the 3-6 program. She works as Lead Teacher in the Journey (3-6) Room. She was born in Medellin, Colombia many years ago. Her bilingual education began at the British-Colombian School. She received a Bachelors degree in Languages and a Masters degree in Language Studies and School Administration & Supervision.
Her interest and love for children, as well as her bilingual career brought her to the U.S. to study Montessori Early Childhood Education. Being in the field of education has allowed her to participate in research, tutoring, mentoring and developing English and Spanish programs at the preschool, elementary, high school and University levels.
Ms Nellie says “I guess what I enjoy most about this work is the wonder in children’s and adult’s eyes when a new door to another culture is opened.”
