843-742-2044 WL4K: World Languages 4 Kids Charleston SC

María Antonia Muñoz

Maria Antonia is from Colombia, and she is currently studying Business Administration. Maria came to the United States through a cultural exchange program, after teaching first and second grade English in Columbia for years. She says that for her, the most enriching experience here in the United States has been working with the kids through WL4K. She says that “the kids always teach you more than what you can teach them.” She grew up learning both English and Spanish at the same time as a child and she says that “that is one of the things I am most grateful for with my parents, that they gave me the opportunity of learning a second language. Knowing both languages have given me the gift of many more opportunities that what I could have ever imagined.”
