Gabriela Ausland, 4th Grade Spanish Immersion Assistant

I was born in Santiago de Chiquitos, a small Jesuit mission village founded in 1754 in Eastern Bolivia. I first fell in love with working with children while in college when I worked as a volunteer with a social and educational program for children that worked on the streets of Santa Cruz, Bolivia's second city. During that time, I also tutored Spanish for volunteers and missionaries from Canada, the U.S., and elsewhere.

In 2002, I came to live in the U.S. with my husband, Aaron. We have also lived in Guatemala and Colombia together. Our son Thiago (10) was born in California, our daughter Ava London (5) was born in Colombia.
