Gladys Benitez-Reilly

President

Founder and Chief Spanish Enthusiast

Gladys began bringing Spanish to non-public K-8 schools over 23 years ago because of the recognized need for effective part-time Spanish teachers in the private and charter school space.  She has taught the program herself and brings her knowledge of educational techniques and practices as well as her passion for Spanish to her offerings.  Gladys enjoys the excitement of introducing and promoting the programs to schools who may not otherwise be able to find effective Spanish teachers and curriculum.
