I’m Elisa Garrett, better known as Señora Garrett to my students. I started out teaching bilingual first grade in Austin ISD for 6 years before having my son Myles and starting this business in 2015. I love working with children. There’s nothing better than seeing their eyes light up with enthusiasm when learning something new.
These are our AMAZING Maestras!
All of our teaches are native Spanish speakers. They love what they do and it shows!

Raquel Reyna was born and raised in deep south Texas and grew up speaking both Spanish and English. Her parents were of the generation that were discouraged from speaking Spanish outside of their homes so they encouraged her to speak more English than Spanish. For that very reason, she chose to take Spanish throughout middle school & high school. Both she and her husband recognize the importance of being multilingual and have benefited from the advantages that come with it. They are actively teaching their daughter English, Spanish and they’re all learning sign language together.
Señora Raquel holds a Master of Library Science with a specialty in Youth Services.
