Adriana Jiménez - Country Day School

Spanish Teacher

After graduating from High School I was in charge of the infant nursery in the Poder Judicial.  Working with those babies is where I found my true vocation and decided to become a preschool teacher.

During my university years at Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to learn about the Montessori philosophy working at ABC Montessori School. After finishing this training, I became a Montessori guide for Kindergarten. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Bilingual Preschool Education from Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, as well as a Master’s Degree in Education from Framingham State College.

In 1998, I joined the Country Day School Early Childhood as a teaching assistant. I later began to develop the Spanish program for Early Childhood. In 2001, I moved into the position of Early Childhood Spanish Teacher.  In 2005 and 2006, I was the CDS Summer Camp Coordinator as well.  CDS has become my second home. I truly believe in the excellent goals we have for our students. I love to see how students learn with hands on experiences and grow in independence.

I am the mother of two children, who both enjoy coming to school at Country Day School each day!  Aside from my passion for teaching, I love reading. I still like reading to my daughter because I believe it’s an excellent opportunity for both of us to learn great things and acquire more vocabulary. I also enjoy baking and cooking for my friends; some day when I retire, I would like to have a pastry shop!
