I was born in Cochabamba, but grew up in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Even though I did not major in education, I hold several English teaching certificates and a Masters in Education. I have taught English for the past 24 years. During this time I occupied different positions such as homeroom teacher, ESL teacher, inclusion teacher, teamleader, and academic coordinator. I had the luck to be able to teach all elementary grades from 1st to 5th. For the past five years, I worked at an American school in Dubai and was able to experience teaching among a wide variety of nationalities and cultures. I believe all these experiences have enriched me as a teacher and long life learner. I am happy to be part of the SCCS team and to continue to expand my teaching and learning experience.
