Luisana Montealegre - Country Day School

Student Support Services Teacher

 

 

My name is Luisana Montealegre and this is my first year working at Country Day School. I attended Country Day as a student from Prep to 8th grade; I have to say that the time I spent in here were the happiest and most motivating years of my childhood! Having the opportunity to come back to CDS as a teacher is incredible, I feel like I came back home! I graduated from Blue Valley School where I was inspired by my counselor and teacher and knew that I wanted to study Psychology. I got my degree in Universidad de Iberoamérica and continued my studies in Universidad La Salle where I received my master’s degree as a Learning Specialist. By this time, I knew I wanted to work with students and to be involved in education as much as I could.

I started working in Pan-American School as the Middle/High School Learning Specialist assistant for a year. After school, I worked in a center giving tutoring and remedial therapy to students from different private schools. I became the Middle School Learning Specialist for 2 years and eventually continued working as the MYP 6th-10th grade Learning Specialist for 2 more years. During this time, I decided to take another academic challenge and started my second master’s degree in Educational Administration, graduating last November. After my great adventure at PAS, last school year I worked in Blue Valley School as the 2nd-3rd grade counselor.

My mom and sister also work in education and the three of us are currently working at CDS. This has been incredibly motivating and I can see how the passion for education runs in our family. Being with my students is the best part of my day! I love seeing them grow as individuals and being a guide for them to achieve every single one of their goals. I love seeing them smile, coming happy to school and being the support they need during the day. I am convinced that every child has his own learning style and his own time to learn, being able to respect that and to support it is why I feel in love with education.
