Lead Spanish Teacher
Maria Elena Hoveskelan
I am honored to welcome you to our Jump On Languages program. My name is Maria Elena Hoveskeland and I will be teaching in the preschool classroom and the after school program. I am a Spanish native speaker from Mexico and have experience teaching Spanish as a second language in different Spanish Immersion schools in the Seattle area. I have been teaching early childhood Education over 15 years specializing with the Montessori Philosophy within the last 3 years of my career.
In our JOL program we have developed a teaching approach that is play based leaning with a mixture of other well recognized philosophies that foster independence, self-confidence and the joy of learning while developing critical skills needed for life as well as having fun.
I look forward to embarking in a wholesome and fulfilling experience with the Jump on Languages program. Thank you for letting me be part of your child's successful educational journey.
Assitant Spanish Teacher
Lorena Del Pino
My name is Lorena and I’m very excited to join the team at Jump on Languages for the Preschool program. I’d love to tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I studied communications and filmmaking in Anáhuac University Mexico. After college I moved to New York to pursue a career in the arts, I have a certification under the New York Film Academy where I studied Musical Theatre and acting for Film. I have been working with kids as a teaching artist for more than ten years now. I am very passionate about early childhood education, and I’m thrilled to join the team at JOL to share my love for culture and the arts. There is nothing more fulfilling than being part of a child’s life, to positively inspire them and see all the wonderful things they are capable of doing when you show you believe in them.
