Wendy Staben - Country Day School

Prep Assistant

I was born and raised in El Salvador,  I have a major in Communications from Universidad Dr Jose Matias Delgado but didn't find my passion in that area. Being a young mom made me realize how I loved being part of children’s education. I decided to study Bilingual Preschool Education and obtained a degree from Universidad Francisco Gavidia. I began my teaching career in nursery level. Later, I gained 6 years  of experience with Prekinder and 1 year in Kinder in Kinder Campoverde, a very well known institution in El Salvador. 

I came to  Costa Rica in 2013 and  found that CDS community was the perfect fit for my  children’s education. Since 2018 I began working at Country Day School as a Teaching Assistant  in Prep, where I have learned so much!  

In my free time, I love to do yoga, paint and spend time with my family. I am also  always searching for education webinars to keep me updated on the latest educational trends and research.
