Monica Olivera is the founder and publisher of MommyMaestra.com, a site for Latino families that homeschool, as well as families with children in a traditional school setting who want to take a more active role in their children’s education. On her site, Monica shares bilingual resources for parents and teachers.
A mother of two, she feels quite strongly about the future of our children, and believes that all parents should strive to raise their children to be proud of their heritage and culture.
