Hola! I’m Paula and I am the founder of Growing Up Bilingual. I was born in Guatemala moved to the United States in 2008 with my husband and two children. In Guatemala I studied in an bilingual school and always wanted the same for my children. I thought teaching them English would be my mission but life had other plans for us and now that we live in Florida they are learning English on their own while we concentrate on keeping Spanish alive at home. My mission is to share advice and tips as well as missteps in our journey to raise two bilingual children in Florida.
I am a passionate advocate for disability and Latino rights, love cooking when I find the time and enjoy spending time with my children at the beach.
About Growing Up Bilingual
Growing Up Bilingual started so that parents raising bilingual children and teachers educating dual language learners would have a place where they can come to for advice, information and resources to help them on their journey . You will find articles about raising children in two languages as well as reviews and giveaways of bilingual books and other products that I consider to be valuable to bilingual families.
