I am a Spanish Teacher and Filóloga. I have a degree in Filología Clásica (Bachelor of Arts), and a Master degree in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. I have been teaching for 15 years, and I have worked in CDS for 5 years now. Before that, I was a Part-time Spanish Instructor at Wingate University and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, and a Full-Time Lecture at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. Moved back to Costa Rica in 2011 with my baby boy (at the time), who is 7 years old now. Since then I have worked as a full-time teacher in Country Day, where I teach Intermedia and Advance Spanish classes, AP Language courses, and Hispanic Literature. I also work editing graduate thesis or educational materials for the Universidad Estatal a Distancia (UNED). During my free time, I love spending time with my son watching his favorite movies. I love to listen to all kinds of music, dance, and work-out. In my personal and professional life, I consider myself an advocate of order, respect, and discipline. What I love about teaching is the new fresh perspective students give to the class. It doesn't matter how many times you teach a certain subject or book, each class will teach you a whole new way to see it.
