About Me

I was born in Colombia where I studied Psychology at Javeriana University. When I moved to the United States in 2000 with my husband and children, I discovered my passion for teaching and working with kids. I began my teaching career at VCLC as a pre-k and kindergarten lead teacher. To further pursue my passion and become a better educator, I went back to school for my masters degree in Applied Linguistics at Jaen University of Spain and for my master degree in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language at the Internacional Iberoamericana University of Puerto Rico. I was then chosen to be on the founding faculty members at St. Benedict's Episcopal School in 2009, which I am very proud of to this day. I feel very privileged and blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of something as important and special as teaching future generations.
