Silvia was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. She earned her BA in Modern Languages from Escuela de Administracion de Negocios (EAN). After working 3 years for MAN Ferrostaal de Colombia Ltda as a bilingual assistant, she moved to the United States in 2008 to be with her husband and they now have 3 energetic boys. After enrolling two of her boys in the Purple School program, she realized that children’s brains are little sponges and her teaching approach is fun while learning a new language through games, movement and stories.
