While I was studying International Relations at the U.A.C.A. University in San José, Costa Rica, I was asked to work as a teacher’s assistant at Lincoln School. This prospect was very exciting to me as it meant returning to the school that I had graduated from and held fond memories of. To my surprise, on the first day on the job, I realized that I had found my true passion.
Consequently, I started going to night school at UNED to get my degree in education. In addition, I decided to finish what I had started and therefore continued my studies in International Relations, receiving a Licenciatura the following year.
Once completed, I pursued my studies in education and received a Master’s degree in Education from Lesley College, Boston. Soon after, I traveled to Switzerland, enrolled at the University of Geneva and obtained a Diplôme d’Etudes en Français from the Sorbonne University.
Once back in Costa Rica, I worked ten years as a teacher at Lincoln School and was offered a position at the Country Day School, which I accepted and where I have been working for 24 years. In all, I have taught students from Pre-Kindergarten to 3rd Grade. However, most of my work has been in 1st grade, which I have taught for 20 years and have thoroughly enjoyed.
