For Yolanda, bilingual education was more of a life calling than a career choice. It sort of found her. Having grown up in Spain, Yolanda moved to the United States in 1997. With a degree in Business Administration, she quickly realized that her heart was more in providing opportunities for kids to become bilingual, celebrating multicultural differences. Yolanda has been teaching since 2000 and holds a Master’s Degree in Bilingual Education. In 2012 she was awarded as the Bilingual Teacher of the Year by CABE (Colorado Association of Bilingual Education).
