Silvia Hernández - Country Day School

Student Support Services Teacher

I have a preschool teacher degree from the University of Costa Rica and a Masters degree from Lesley College in Boston. I worked for nine years in different schools in Costa Rica and have been at Country Day for the last 24 years. 


After 15 years of being a Preparatory teacher, I started taking courses about my passion: teaching reading. I started training in Barton Reading and Spelling System and began working in the Student Support department, where I found my true calling.

Helping children achieve their goals and find a safe and comfortable place is what I love.

I love traveling, cooking and reading. I love my family and CDS.
