Sombrero Time was founded in 2008 by Ruth and David Finsthwait, holding the first classes in their garage with their own children, along with their friends and the neighborhood kids–all from a desire to teach the life-changing difference learning a second language makes. As a thought leader, Ruth speaks at conferences and workshops, sharing her philosophy and practical lessons for second language acquisition. Both Dave and Ruth are passionate to serve their staff and the parents and children of the Sombrero Time community.

WHY THE SOMBRERO?
Hard Work and Celebration
Hard work and celebration are integral to many Spanish-speaking cultures, and we seek to honor the richness of these many diverse cultures around the world, teaching our industrious children to celebrate a job well done!
