I have been in the field of education for 8 years. My current experience working in a student-centered, inclusive learning environment in Quito, Ecuador, has given me the tools to design and deliver a project-based education for students of varied cultural backgrounds, where they are empowered to become protagonists of their learning. My formal study has provided me with an understanding of child development and family relationships. Those studies have emphasized the diversity of families and how children and families are influenced by the broader environment and change over time. I am passionate about early childhood and I am committed to making an impact in all of my students’ lives.
