In 1997, I started my studies in General Basic Education for I and II cycle at the Universidad de Costa Rica, however, my work experience in the area had already begun a little less than a year ago as a Spanish teacher at the Instituto Británico where I taught the language to foreign students. I combined my university studies with this work at the institute and other private classes that I taught to children of school age.
Before graduating, I decided to work full-time in my specialty and started at Escuela Panamericana (Pan-American School) as a first-grade Spanish teacher.
Upon graduation and thanks to the experience in teaching both native Spanish children and foreign students, in 2000 I had the opportunity to be part of the staff of Country Day School.
My work in this institution guided me to obtain my master's degree in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language, also at the Universidad de Costa Rica, with the goal of having more and better tools for my performance as an educator.
Throughout these years, I have been in charge of different groups, from pre-kindergarten children to Middle School teenagers.
In addition to work in County Day School, I enhanced my work experience with summer classes for teenagers and written and oral expression courses for adults of CIPET, current Universidad Técnica Nacional.
I enjoy my work and the knowledge of the person in its different stages; my goal is to collaborate with their development, conceiving it as the integral being that it is. I am a person open to new ideas and, therefore, willing to changes that promise to be better. I believe in education and I am proud to be part of the process.
