Meet Beth of Boca Beth

Tell us a little about you.

I am a bilingual mom of three children and educator of thousands. Thanks for my Boca Beth product line I am now traveling the country speaking with fellow educators about how fun & easy it can be to introduce Spanish and English to little children (even when they, the teachers, are monolingual!). I was born in the United States and had the great fortune to study abroad in Chile and Mexico.

What is your business and where can we find it?

My company is called Boca Beth LLC – boca = mouth in Spanish which is the name of our puppet in our DVD series that now airs on The Education Channel. He is BOCA, I am Beth, and together we make up Boca Beth – where it’s fun, easy and affordable to give your child a jump start on learning Spanish and English together in a true bilingual format.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

I started conceptualizing the program and product line back in the early 2000s as a preschool “Ms. Music” teacher. I am the founder and creator of the CDs, DVDs, coloring/activity books and even helped the original Baby Einstein puppet maker evolve BOCA our puppet/language amigo into who he is today!

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

Starting out with music CDs was very important to me as a teacher and as a mom. Our first of four music CDs came out on the heels of our first DVD (which again, as a teacher, I had to include in the product line up for the visual learners). Now our edutainment is aired on The Education Channel here in the Tampa Bay area with hopes of other public access channels picking up the programming for FREE soon. (That is how Barney got discovered, so BOCA is hoping he has the same great fortune!)

****Shown below in concert with me!********

Where else can people find you?

We as a company can be found at a non-profit site www.BocaBeth.org where free lesson plans, vocabulary lists and such can be found changing monthly. I can be found on my blog One Song at a Time www.BocaBeth.net along with Twitter at http://twitter.com/bocabeth and MySpace at http://myspace.com/BocaBeth plus at Facebook http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1374780428&ref=profile (still learning how to use all this social media stuff correctly!!!!)

Anything else you’d like to share?

As scary of a time as this year has been for both big businesses and small businesses, I can’t help but feel it’s going to be a good change ahead. Creating a business is work and takes passion and energy and money sometimes you think you never had! But, if this is your true passion, your calling in life, then no matter the naysayers along the way and no matter the challenges you might encounter, if you stay true to your vision and create good karma wherever your travels take you, you will prevail!

i would love the gigante bag in either red or purple. i love that you offer the how to guide in either english or spanish. as someone whose spouse is hispanic, i am constantly looking for bilingual books, and cds for my niece who lives in cuba- when i lived in miami, it was easy, but i have since moved to a small town in georgia, and it has been very difficult for me to find any products- i love that this is something that both my niece and her parents could enjoy and learn from.
