Who will be teaching?

Mexican-born Elena Osalde has been living in Melbourne for the last 12 years. She was born in Mexico City and visited several states in Mexico, discovering similarities and traits that make each corner of Mexico unique.

Elena has seen many faces of Mexico, from the fanciest business districts to the poorest villages.
Not all Mexicans are the same, but they all share a joy for life, a friendly nature and a natural flair for fun.

Elena holds a Bachelor in Science, an MBA and many certificates in culture and performing arts awarded in Mexico and Australia.
