Bienvenidos from Mr. Barahona, Mrs. DeMelo and Nanuk!

Hello! ¡Hola! Bonjour! I am so excited to start my first year as a House Parent in Bolton. I look forward to being part of such a great community and connecting with students from around the world. I moved to Canada from Ecuador ten years ago and have had the opportunity to live in Montreal, Winnipeg, and now beautiful Victoria. 

In my spare time, I like to play soccer, ride my bike, customize my cars and bikes, and I also enjoy cooking while listening to my favorite Latin rhythms. I look forward to kicking the ball around with you on the field, and I hope that we have a chance to share some of our favorite traditional dishes from home. 

Mrs. DeMelo is a House Parent in Winslow, and you may even have her as your Spanish teacher this year. We both speak Spanish and French and are happy to practice with you whenever you feel like it. You will also surely see our dog Nanuk around campus. Just don’t let her get a hold of your soccer ball, because you might not get it back!

See you soon and have a great first week!
