How long have you worked at TIDE?

This is my first year and I’m super excited to start teaching the little ones of the school :)


Where did you receive your education/what did you study?

I did Middle School and High School at North Lincoln HS in North Carolina, then I moved back to CR

to study Early Education Science in the University of Costa Rica.


Describe your teaching style:

My teaching style can be described as interactive, supportive and creative. I encourage

my students to have a voice in the classroom, ask questions and participate actively

regardless of their level of confidence.


What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that each child is unique and learns in different ways. It’s my job as the

kindergarten teacher to provide a creative, engaging, safe and fun environment to my

students to thrive and accomplish goals to their fullest potential.


Why do you like teaching at TIDE?

What I like the most is that we have children and teachers from different parts of the

world so we all can learn about each other’s culture. It makes Tide a perfect place to

have intercultural experiences.


What do you like to do when you are not teaching?

I have a babysitting and Kids Club To-Go business so I like to spend time being

creative and making cool stuff for the kids.I love to be in the Nature too so if I am not

working you will probably find me at the beach, waterfalls or mountains.
