My (International) Teaching 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 and secondary-level Informática at the British American School in Puerto Vallarta, México.

I moved to Colombia in 2014 to work 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 in Barranquilla as a teacher and communications strategist with Bogotá Business English. In 2018, I returned to Sacramento, California, where I currently work in a bilingual position with the State government.

Prior to teaching, I worked in Information Technology, Digital Composition, and Administrative Support with the California State Government, and as a graphic designer in the San Francisco Bay Area, earning certificates in multimedia and the study of technology through print and web production.
