Carolina Duran

Teacher of World Languages

Hola a todos! I am originally from Bogota, Colombia. I graduated from Universidad Pedagógica Nacional with a Bachelors of Spanish-English. I also have a Masters Degree in Education, Research and Curriculum from Saint Thomas University. I am a google certified teacher working towards becoming a Google certified Trainer.  I love technology and its use in the classroom. 


I have worked for 7 years in Colombia as a Spanish and English teacher and with all different levels including elementary, high school and college. This is my 15th year teaching. One of my goals is to providea stimulating environment that encourages students to trust their own opinions, while fostering confidence in order for them to realize their full potential. 

I enjoy traveling, watching movies, reading, art, painting and scrapbooking. One of my passions is visiting new countries whenever I can and last year I went to Spain and Mexico with a group of students; it was a fantastic experience!

This School is different to all others I have worked at because…

The British International School of Houston everyone is open-minded and highly motivated with the best IB school in Houston. The students are very friendly and encourage themselves to engage in new challenges.

What the students say about me.... 

Dear Mrs. Duran, Thank you so much for everything. We are blessed to have a teacher like you. Thank you for your dedication and great work of teaching us Spanish. 

Thank you very much for all your advice and for being by our side. We hope to continue with your excellent work. 

I want to tell you that you are a teacher that I love very much. I really like your class. The oral presentations that we do in class have helped me a lot with my abilities to speak not only in another language but to a public.
