I began my career as a Preschool Teacher before I graduated from the University of Costa Rica at a kindergarten in the South part of San José in 1997. Later, I worked for several months in an Integral Attention Center for the Health Minister. Here, I was part of a team that worked with an emphasis on physical and emotional development; this was a great opportunity to learn outside of the University' classrooms. I graduated from the UCR in 1998 with a degree in Preschool Education. I later obtained my Master’s Degree in Psychopedagogy from Universidad de La Salle.
I worked in the Costa Rica public school system from 2000 to 2001, where I taught first and second grade at the Abraham Lincoln School in Alajuelita. I was part of a system that integrated students with various special needs. In 2002, I began to work as a learning coach with a student who attended CDS.
In 2004, I joined the Country Day School community as a teaching assistant in the ELC (Early Learning Center). This experience made me fall in love with early childhood and CDS. I decided to focus my energy on preschool-age students and stayed at CDS instead of further developing my career in Psychopedagogy, allowing me to apply my knowledge of Psychopedagogy with my students on a daily basis.
In 2011, I began working as a preschool teacher at CDS. These years have been a learning path that allow me constant growth in many areas. I love learning, reading, eating and walking in nature.
