Carmen Toledo

Village K&1 Teacher

Carmen has been in the education field for about more than 20 years. In her career, she developed a love for the Reggio Approach as she had the opportunity to participate in a Reggio program, which gave her the opportunity to learn about different approaches to teaching using the natural environment. She discovered her passion for teaching in a different environment to what she was used to, where children can learn by exploring, asking questions and problem solving.

Soon after she began her search for a school in which she would be able to integrate her knowledge and love for nature and dual language. When she learned about AGC and its mission, she knew she had found it. For the first time, she stepped in the school where she felt a sense of belonging.
