Maria Wintermute

3yo classroom English lead teacher

I grew up in a bilingual household - a mother from Mexico and a father from North Carolina. As a result, I am a Spanish and English native speaker and a true believer in the benefits of learning as many languages as possible at an early age.

 

I graduated from UNCG, where I studied international affairs and development and Spanish, and I have a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification. I have been at LEAP since the fall of 2021; before, I taught English for five years, with 2 of those years being in Argentina.

 

I love teaching and learning from the kids playing, discovering, being exposed to new interests, using their senses, and exploring everything that surrounds us.
