    About Me

    I´m originally from Cali, Colombia. I studied foreign languages (English & French) and taught English for 5 years at different levels: elementary, middle school & university. In 2011, I moved to Argentina where I studied a master degree in Educational Technology. This is my third year working for Iredell-Statesville Schools  and I´m very excited about sharing my knowledge and experience with all of you.
