I am Maia. I am originally from South America. I am an inquiry lover, a Reggio-inspired educator, Apple Teacher, lifelong learner, and currently mothering Third Culture Kids while my husband and I give them the world.


I believe in the Image of the Child, in fostering playful inquiry because all children are capable and caring individuals with personal interests and strengths. As a teacher-researcher, I aim to empower children to be confident in who they are, as they become the best versions of themselves in a continuous path of self-discovery. Individuals who will use their voice to bring social-justice and sustainable practices in global dimensions.


When I am out of the classroom you can find me in my second Atelier, the kitchen, experimenting with spices. I am passionate about holistic approaches to living, like Yoga, Reiki, and Ayurveda. I am a photographer aficionado and love writing about my experiences on the Medium platform.

Nowadays, I am striving to be an active Minimalist and Mindfulness seeker.
