Learning Support Assistant

I am from Costa Rica, where I worked as a Preschool teacher for 9 years, most of my experience was practicing the Montessori Method, which I loved! Before coming to Doha I finished my degree in Special Education. In Doha, I have worked as a classroom teacher. First, in a kindergarten and then in an international school.  Finally, I came to Compass, to work as an LSA, a new and important opportunity for me. 


 I am married and I have two daughters. My hobbies are reading and cooking. My personal goals at the moment are to learn Arabic, and continue my Italian lessons.


Our school  provides support to the children with learning difficulties and disabilities. Here, kids with a special condition, can feel accepted and supported, because the school provides the special services they require to succeed. This has helped Compass International School Doha to be recognized in Doha as a unique school.
