I am an international educator with five years of experience teaching abroad. I have taught primary, secondary and adult levels, from instructing fourth and fifth grade English in a public school to helping business professionals learn valuable skills to communicate with clients as part of their positions within multinational corporations.
In addition to my role as an educator, am also an independent writer specializing in articles that provide teachers with information about living and working abroad and attract readers to educational websites.

My (International) Story
I received my TEFL certificate from the International Teacher Training Organization in Guadalajara, México in 2012, with additional ITTO Online certification in Teaching Business English and TESOL Technology. In 2013, I taught English at a language center in Tlaquepaque, México, and secondary-level Informática at the British American School in Puerto Vallarta, México.
I moved to Colombia in 2014 as a year-long volunteer with WorldTeach and Volunteers Colombia, teaching primary-level English at a public school in Barranquilla. In 2015 and 2016, I was a teacher at the secondary-level with Aspaen Gimnasio Cartagena de Indias, where I worked as the Area Director for Information Communications and Technology, and as a teacher of English literature and creative writing. In 2017, I worked with Bogotá Business English as an independent teacher and writer in Barranquilla.
Prior to teaching, I worked in Information Technology, Digital Composition and Administrative Support with the State Government of California, and as a graphic designer in the San Francisco Bay Area, earning certificates in multimedia and the advanced study of technology through print and web production.
