About Me



¡Hola! I am Maria Acuña, the founder of Alphabet Space and creator of My Space Friends.

I have been teaching Spanish as a second language for the last twenty one years at the The Advent School, an elementary school in Boston, Massachusetts. I have created and taught the Spanish Curriculum of this Elementary school (now from Second through Sixth Grade) and continue to enrich it everyday with art and games among other things!

Previous to this, I taught English as a Second Language to children from Preschool to Third grade in her native country, Venezuela. I was also a Kindergarten teacher and a First Grade Teacher.  Additionally I have worked as an illustrator and graphic designer.

I received my master’s degree in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at the Universidad Nacional Abierta in Caracas, Venezuela. I also completed a 3 year program in Graphic Design in the Instituto de Diseño Perera in Caracas, Venezuela.

I am blessed to use my love for language, culture and design to teach my students Spanish everyday.

¡Muchas Gracias! For visiting this site!

Maria Acuña
