About me
About me

My research broadly focuses on child bilingualism. I am specifically interested in exploring the factors that contribute to bilingual language acquisition in multilingual learners in Latin@ communities, and how our schools can foster bilingualism and support heritage language maintenance. I have led comparative studies in bilingual schools in Spanish-speaking countries (most recently in Perú, Chile, México and Spain) to investigate the contexts and educational models that influence language acquisition. As a heritage speaker of Spanish myself, I believe that increasing our understanding of bilingual development has direct implications for successful academic outcomes, language policy and pedagogy, as well as bilingual, multilingual and dual language education. In my previous life I was a flamenco dancer in the U.S. and Spain, and then founded a series of original programs in Madrid for second language acquisition through movement called Hello! English. Today, I am Assistant Professor of Bilingual Education and TESOL in the Graduate School of Education at Touro University. My favorite job, though, is raising my two incredible, strong, and bilingual daughters.
