ESL and Spanish teacher. Content creator.
Arnaly stumbled into teaching quite by accident, but she swears it's the best twist of fate in her life. Her academic journey took her through Administration, Marketing, and a rockin' Bachelor of Music from McGill University. Music was her jam—she performed, snagged awards, and then life took an unexpected turn. Cue the babies and the start of her teaching gig.
What started as a side hustle quickly became the most rewarding chapter of her life. For a solid decade, she's been rocking the teaching world, sharing her love for piano, English, and Spanish. Her passion for nurturing young minds and fueling their creativity keeps her happily occupied. And when she's not busy inspiring minds, Arnaly keeps things interesting with a love for all things spicy, though she's not diving headfirst into the world of super-hot peppers.
Arnaly's story is a testament to life's unexpected surprises, from an accidental teacher to a passionate educator who's living her best life.

Ken has hot spices running through his veins.... literally! He could compete in the Hottest Pepper Eating Contest and win. Ken worked for more than 20 years in the food brokerage business, where he represented brands such as Tabasco (sounds familiar?) Ocean Spray and many others in Canada. With that same passion, he opened a food truck and became a brand name in Nova Scotia. Now retired from working on the truck, he has his own YouTube show in which he shares his knowledge and has fun. Ken has the responsibility of keeping the content alive and spicy. He was Arnaly's first Spanish student.
