CAROLINA PEREDO

SCHOOL DIRECTOR

Back when I was 12 and I asked my mom to please stop sending me to English lessons, I didn’t imagine I would end up moving to the far west, I mean Texas, and forming a bicultural family. Growing up in a town in southern Argentina, surrounded by mountains where to ski and lakes where to camp, the last thing on my mind was to learn a foreign language. 

It wasn’t until I was studying Journalism and Communication that I understood that education -alternative, revolutionary, liberating- has no boundaries. I'm thrilled to have completed a Montessori certificate training for pre-primary (2-6 years old).

I learned that living far away from home makes you value your own culture and identity, that to remember who we are and where we come from helps us know who we want to be and respect others.

I think it is fundamental that everyone, starting in early childhood, could experience the discovery of other cultures. With that in mind I intend to grow a “tribe” with other Austin families with similar mindsets -when it comes to their kids' education. 

I have a fatal attraction to artists, but I don’t belong in that breed. My thing is to plan, problem solve, answer questions, make spreadsheets and create never-ending to do lists. I also love being outdoors and traveling.

La Tribu is the place for your child to grow learning about diversity.
