After completing my bachelor’s degree in Political Science at the University of Florida, I joined Peace Corps Costa Rica. From 2010-2013, I co-taught with English teachers in two rural schools. I helped the county of Acosta start its recycling program and trained students ages 4-65 in Microsoft Office. In 2014, I moved to my hometown Miami and joined the Teach for America 2014 cohort. I taught U.S. History, Government and Economics at Miami Central Senior High while coaching the ladies soccer team and sponsoring Environmental Club. I was also able to obtain my Master’s degree in Education and Social Change at the University of Miami in 2016.
Since moving back to Costa Rica in 2018, I have been enthralled by the country once again. I love traveling to the beaches and hiking in the mountains. I love visiting my friends throughout the country. Travelling is my passion as well as exploring new cultures. My goal is to visit every continent in the next five years. My hobbies include hiking and being outdoors.
I’m loving working at Country Day School. The students are so bright and excited to learn. My belief is that if we give them the skills and time to research, explain and defend their thoughts and opinions about history they’ll be able to become the leaders we expect of them.
