Claudia was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has been working with children for 20 years. Claudia holds a BA in Foreign Languages and Literature from the University of Delaware. After graduation, she obtained her teaching credential in English as a Second Language and worked in two public schools in Delaware. After moving to New Jersey, Claudia taught Spanish in a fully immersed Spanish preschool. She moved to California in 2010 and decided to start her own Spanish program for kids that she named “Arroz Con Leche”. She taught Spanish for 8 years in afterschool programs and a preschool in Moraga. During this time, she fell in love all over again with the preschoolers. In 2018 she started working at Mulberry Tree Preschool in Moraga and went back to school to take classes in Early Childhood Education. In September 2023, she will start her Montessori teacher training. Claudia is honored to join the Growing Light family and work with your beautiful children! She lives in Moraga and is a proud mom: her daughter Sofia is a junior in Campolindo and her son Santiago is a senior at UC Davis. In her free time, she loves spending time with her children, going to the beach and doing yoga.
