Taught Elementary and Preschool English at Cota, Cundinamarca for 7 years before coming to Locust Grove to teach again.
Taught 3rd-11th grade Spanish and English at school in Bogotá, Colombia for 3 years.
Taught Literacy and Preschool at a school in Chía, Cundinamarca.
Participant of the IVEP MCC Program at Locust Grove as a teacher aid for First to Third grade during 2013-2014.
Enjoys Teaching Because: I am excited to work at LM because this is a dream come true. After being part of the IVEP program I wanted to come back and be part of the Spanish Immersion program. Also, because teaching abroad will bring learning and pedagogic experiences and the opportunity to create new bonds with children and colleagues. I enjoy teaching because every day you find something interesting, challenging, fun, new and exciting to work with children, they always brings joy and a sense of adventure.
Favorite Bible Verse: Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Other: In my free time, I like to read, sleep, hike, travel, try new food and watch movies. I am a lifelong learner and I believe that as teachers we need to keep learning about our students, our context, methodologies and technologies which are going to improve our way of teaching and the ways our students learn.
