The Voices of BBMA
“I was instantly intrigued with BBMA and it’s curriculum. The second I found out about it and did my research, I fell in love and have been enjoying this journey ever since. Who doesn’t want to learn about the world and all of its beautiful cultures? My students are going to learn all about the amazing traditions, people, languages, and architecture that is all around the world. By the time they graduate they will have literally traveled the world through learning and I just think that is the coolest thing. Their passport is going to be filled with stamps, so exciting!”

“The best part about my center is the team! While this year has been quite difficult because of the pandemic, our team has really risen to the challenge. I’ve often witnessed moments where teachers and staff have gone above and beyond to help one another; senior teachers mentoring new hires, teachers helping cover shifts in the case of absences, administration stepping into the classroom to lend a hand or cover breaks. Our amazing team is the main reason for our success as a school.”

“Cada dia es mi favorito: cuando observo las sonrisa de los niños y un constante te quiero, mi dia se ilumina.”
“Every day is my favorite day. When I see the children’s smiles and hear their constant ‘I love you,’ my day lights up.”
