I am so happy and excited about having  your children this year!!!

I've been teaching for more than 20 years in my country, Costa Rica. I went to the University of Costa Rica and started teaching kindergarten. Then, I taught Social Studies and Spanish in 3rd grade. After getting my English degree, I started teaching English to adults and then went back to teaching English to third and second graders.
I came  to the US four years ago to teach Spanish/Global Learning because I truly believe that learning a second language and teaching global education prepare students for success in an interconnected world. Students can excel in core curriculum as well as develop valuable 21st century skills.
I love traveling, adventures, biking, hiking, kayaking, camping, learning/teaching about different cultures, and I love the mountains. That's why Asheville is perfect for me!!!!!.
This year will be an awesome year full of learning and fun not only for your kids but also for me!!!!!
I really enjoy working at Oakley Elementary, I love my students and  all the people that work there!!!!
