"Almudena Cros can do the impossible! She transformed a jet lagged group of American 8th graders who had already toured the grand Bernabeu Stadium that afternoon into mesmerized engaged students in the Prado for two hours of art and Spanish history.
She accomplished that feat of educational prowess with her engaging personality, professional expertise, knowledge of young teens, and a keen eye as to what art would make the best memories for the students. The next day when we toured Escorial with a docent there, she was amazed at what the students knew and how they had a grasp of that historical epoch in Spain.
The Wood Acres School in Marietta, Georgia is an International Spanish Academy through the Embassy of Spain in Washington, DC. We had high expectations for our trip and Dr. Cros launched our journey to this amazing country to the apogee of enjoyment and education. She will be a part of our planning each year hence!"
