I was born and raised in Colombia, where I received a bachelor’s degree in physics and engineering. I worked as a teacher’s assistant, research assistant, and researcher for The National University of Colombia. I have danced since I was nine years old. I know the basics of break dance, belly dance, hip-hop, merengue, and Colombian salsa. I taught science, Spanish, and grace-and-courtesy in Montessori Schools for two years. I have taken several classes in psychology and early childhood education, leadership in education, and school operations and administration. I strongly believe that each individual has the inner gift to help transform and empower a society that doesn’t always offer the best role models. . I believe that by providing better opportunities for education and work we can certainly make a positive impact on individuals in our communities.
I have taught math from Algebra 1 to Precalculus, Physics, and Spanish from beginning Spanish to AP (Advance placement). I am also a Latin Dance, Strong by Zumba and PIYO teacher. I understand how body movement and physical health contribute to students’ emotional, mental and physical health.
Each person has unique talents and skills. My goal is to provide opportunities for learning.
