I have been a teacher for 22 years. First, I earned my degree in Art at the State University of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (U.A.S.D.). I later earned a bilingual teaching degree from U.N.P.H.U., also in Santo Domingo. After teaching for 6 years in the D.R., I moved to Pittsburgh where I taught for the following 10 years. While in Pittsburgh, I received the "Walmart Teacher of the Year" award. I moved to Georgia in 2006 and I have been teaching Art and Spanish, among other subjects, at a local Christian school. I love my job and really enjoy interacting with struggling students. I do my best to raise the student's self-esteem and to help him/her believe that he/she can do better. I am fluent in Spanish and I use my artistic talent to enhance my teaching style. I am warm, approachable, and flexible. My experience with students for the last 21 years, as well as with my own three children, has empowered me to be patient, understanding, yet consistent in my approach. In addition to my experience as a school teacher, I have worked as an in-home tutor for the last six years.
