Thank you for stopping by and checking out all Spanish Seeds has to offer.
I am a mom. immigrant and native Spanish speaker with a passion for bilingualism. I was born in Mexico and came to the United States in 1992. My first language is Spanish, but attended an all English speaking school. Thankfully, my parents pushed me to practice Spanish at home. As I grew up, I began to see the importance of being bilingual and knowing two languages in today’s culture. Now, I teach my children Spanish at home and intentionally pursue my children to be bilingual.
The main question I receive from friends is, “How can I teach my children Spanish?” and comments, such as, “I wish my children knew Spanish!” I loved giving our friends tips and tricks on exposing their children to the Spanish language - even though they, themselves, cannot speak it. This is when Spanish Seeds was born.
I hope Spanish Seeds provides you with the adequate resources to expose your child to Spanish and create bilingual brains. Please contact with questions and comments. This is more than a box, it’s a community.

Hola! My name is Alejandra Witherspoon. I graduated from the University of North Texas with my Bachelors in Spanish and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Bilingual Education and my Principal Certification.
Throughout my years in education I have taught both in the classroom and as bilingual instructional support as well as district Elementary English Language Learner Specialist.
I am now a stay at home mom to a little girl and little boy. In my free time I enjoy being with my family, running, riding bike, attending church, as well as always making life educational and bilingual!
BIlingual education has always been very important to me and a part of who I am and can not wait to share this with your family!
