There are many facets to a person and, though we value academic education and find that it is important to one’s future, we also believe in motivating and supporting our children in all ways.
As high-educated parents, we support Matias’ homework, but we believe that the learning process doesn’t start nor ends in school, and it must be highly motivated at all times.
As Scout Leaders, we were able to lead large groups of kids, teaching them in an experiential and positive way, where the activities and knowledge were desired and embraced by the kids.
In the same way, we guide Matias and will guide our second child, to embrace and enjoy the thrill of learning. And we will be so proud on the day our children see the ripe of their efforts, either graduating from college or wherever else they choose to do.
We are part of the Portola Valley School District, one of the best in the country, and it has countless valuable programs, like a Spanish immersion program, which is important for us as a bilingual family.
