Hello! My name is Daniela. I was born in Ecuador where I spent my childhood and learned how to speak Spanish fluently. When I was 8 years old my parents and I moved to the “Big Apple.” What a transition that was for all of us, especially having to learn a new language that we had never even practiced before!

Sure, we had plenty of obstacles, but all my progress made me realize how important language really was. I especially learned the importance of learning it at an early age.
After high school, I went to Queens College, where I decided to study teaching. I told myself that I wanted to make a difference in kids’ lives, and create an environment in which they feel happy and look forward to going.

The more I learned the more I enjoyed it and found such a big passion for it. Today, I have earned a BA certification. I have great experience with special needs children of different ages, in small groups and on a one to one basis. Teaching is not only a career to me, it is a calling.

This calling provides the opportunity to work with learners as they advance and their success is my reward. I am very excited to embark on this new journey with Arc En Ciel, and create unforgettable memories!
