Viviana Araya - Country Day School

Pre-Kinder Teacher

I started my career  in education at CDS in 1996 working as a nanny in the school’s Day Care Center, a few years later I became a Teacher’s Assistant and gathering experience while attending higher education.  

After obtaining  my Bachelor’s Degree in PreSchool Education from Universidad San Judas Tadeo in 2003,  and a specialization degree in Education for Children With Special Needs from the same institution in 2007, I was promoted to Kinder’s Teacher in 2010.

I am fortunate to have over 20 years of teaching experience at CDS, where I  have worked with a large variety of leaders and colleagues who have shared and enriched my own expertise as a teacher. 

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Preschool Education from Universidad San Judas Tadeo and a Master’s Degree in Education for Children With Special Needs from the Universidad San Judas Tadeo.

I have been fortunate to have 23 years at CDS where I have worked with a rich variety of leaders and colleagues who have enriched my expertise as a teacher.
