    After graduating with a BSc (Hons.) Degree in Mathematics & Statistics from the University of Glasgow, I spent almost a decade traveling whilst teaching. Specifically, I worked in Italy and Chile as well as visiting a number of South American countries. I then flew to Costa Rica in 2009 expecting to be here just a few years at the most but my love for the country has ensured that I'm still here today!

    In 1991, I started working as a Spanish Language teacher at the British Institute. Thanks to this work, in 1994 I traveled to England as an assistant of the Spanish as a Second Language Program in the United Kingdom, at Exeter College and at Honiton Community College; where I developed a great enthusiasm for my future profession and the opportunity to be in contact with teenagers and young adults who were interested in learning the language.

  • Country Day School - Ximena Daza

    Ximena Daza

    HS Biology, AP Biology

    Ximena Daza

    Born in Cochabamba, Bolivia, I realized early on that my ultimate goal in life was to advocate for wild animals and the environment. First, I became a field biologist. The kingdom of Belgium gave me a scholarship that allowed me to get a bachelor´s degree in investigation. I studied the ecology and reproductive patterns of Podocnemis unifilis in the Ichilo River of Cochabamba.  During this first research thesis, to collect the data, I spent one month in a rustic boat Bolivia’s Amazon Basin. 

    I later obtained a full scholarship from the US Fish and Wildlife Services and a grant from the Cleveland Zoo, which allowed me to move to Venezuela and complete a master’s thesis and study a rare and little-known fresh-water turtle: Chelus fimbriatus (the “matamata”).

    After completing my master’s thesis dissertation, I moved back to Cochabamba, where my oldest son Cid became my adventure companion while I worked as a research associate for the National Museum of Natural History. I actively participated with the Bat Conservation Program and conducted numerous projects to raise awareness about this mammal’s importance for the ecosystem.
