About Maria

Hello, my name is Maria and I am an experienced teacher of children and adults with nearly 20 years in education field. I am currently highly qualified and certified in the states of Florida and New York and a member of The Golden Key International Honor Society. I earned my Associate Degree in Human Services, Bachelor of Psychology, and two Master Degrees in Bilingual Education and Educational Leadership from the City University of New York, and am fluently bilingual in English and Spanish. My experience teaching is in the elementary level, as well as adult education.

I have a wide range of experience in most capacities in the public school systems. I am also a product of public school education and the first bilingual program in this country, which began in 1968. I was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico and relocated to New York with my mother and two sisters. I believe in Vygotsky's theory that every person can learn, given the tools, resources, and encouragement.

I have a passion for education and am currently pursuing my doctoral studies in education, in order to better equip myself to empower future teachers at the university level. I look forward to serving you as a resource to improve your skills, strengthen areas of challenge, and provide advancement in areas of strength.
