Assistant Mentor for the Sapphire and Amethyst Classes & Lead Mentor for the Spanish and Theatre Classes.
Gabriela Rodriguez is the Learning Specialist for the Sapphire and Amethyst classes. She also teaches Spanish and Theatre to Sapphires, Amethysts, Emeralds & Opals.
Gabriela was born in Arica, Chile. She left Arica in the year 2000 and began a journey of knowledge and self-awareness. She studied theatre, dance, health coaching, prenatal yoga, which all led her to become a Doula. Gabriela also completed a post graduate degree in music therapy, body awareness and Psychology.
Gabriela began her teaching journey with neighborhood children’s classes when she was 14 years old. From that time on, she has been involved in diverse forms of teaching: Spanish tutoring, integrative after school programs, child care, Montessori substitute teaching, as a Baha’í children’s class coordinator, and as a health coach.
Her interest in teaching children grows every day, and her hope is to contribute to their future and to help coach them to reach their brightest potential. She strives to serve humanity and to create a better world by walking her path and taking action. She enjoys the opportunity to learn by doing and sometimes by making mistakes and growing from them. She challenges herself by keeping a humble and positive attitude in front of our children, especially her own - Aayan and Amaya, because she will never stop learning from them. They are the most sincere mirror, and Gabriela feels very grateful for that. She is so excited to learn and grow with your children too!
