Hi there! My name is Milena Hernández Gallego. I’m a Spanish teacher at la escuela.
CHILDREN & PINEAPPLES
Since my arrival to Australia in 2018, I have had more than fifteen different jobs. From picking pineapples to nannying I have picked up my fair share of Australian culture, but never neglected my calling to teach Spanish. When I met Tamara in 2019, It was clear we had to join forces and materialize what we both wanted to do: teach Spanish and share our culture with other people.
I am passionate about teaching languages because I can see the impact it has on individuals and society. Learning a second language has real world implications: it opens people’s minds and facilitates communication. It also helps us understand our own language, deconstructs the way we see the world and reconfigures our reality. Learning a language is a powerful tool of creation.
