Senora Maria Alice
Closter Specialist, Language

My children attended Palisades when they were preschoolers and I loved the program so much that I joined the staff. As a fluent Spanish speaker and with my love of teaching I developed a fun learn through play language program for Palisades preschool children in 2009. Every year the children help me to improve upon the program. It continues to develop making it even more innovative, educational and of course always enjoyable! I dress up for the students each week in the colors that we are learning, as fun characters throughout the year N(some are furry, some are purple, and all are lovable). I love being able to do what I love, alongside the wonderful teachers. I am happy to be making a difference in the world by inspiring a love of the Spanish language and culture to our early childhood students.
