In 1979, after finishing high school, I traveled to France for a year to study French at the Catholic Institute of Paris. When I returned to Costa Rica, I worked at the Costa Rica branch of the Banque Nationale de Paris for two years. After marrying in 1982, I had three children ( a girl and a pair of twins) in the span of 14 months. Apart from working as a stay-at-home mom, I volunteered at the Blue Valley School library twice a week and acted as the class representative for my children from preschool to high school. Having developed a taste for children’s education, I became a prep assistant at Blue Valley in 1995. My interest led me to work at the Growing Minds summer camp in 2012. In 2013, I joined the CDS family where I’ve been working in the position of Library Assistant at the Country Day School Elementary Library. Each day it is a joy to come to work, where I learn from both the children and my colleagues.
