This was the first time I had worked with students who were 12 to 16 years old and I had the enriching opportunity of teaching a variety of subjects that included History, Biology, Chemistry, Reading, Grammar and this experience helped shape my training in discipline, organization and planning.
Taught English class to grades Pre-Kinder to 6th. I started working as a teacher before graduating from high school, but my experience regarded students sometimes older than me. Teaching little children is a very challenging job specially because they are still learning their mother tongue, but these kids are very absorbent in learning and the teaching process is truly satisfying. For the elementary students; I had graduated as an elementary teacher so it was easier for me to apply my recently obtained elementary teacher diploma.
As my field of Study would include English and teaching. I focused in a career that would give me the tools to write fictional books, essays, poetry, plays for the purpose of entertaining. Creative writing careers are usually wellfitted to match Literature and Language majors. I was forced to study a lot of Grammar, spelling, syntax, semantics and the meaning of language and expressions in order to make the written and oral language more fluent and comprehensive.
I graduated as a Elementary School Teacher. Maestra de Educación Primaria Urbana
I have worked extensively in other fields of English; these include English tutoring and as a Language coach for persons who want, need or are required to improve their English for specific reasons like: obtain a job, graduate from college or pass a test for an educational purpose, many of my students recognize the importance that speaking and understanding the English language can have in their lives. Some others are younger students that have to obtain certain points to be promoted to another grade of their education. I have particularly specialized in this matter. For the students that need a TOEFL test or an iBT certificate I am also trained to help these people so they can achieve whichever goal they have set for themselves.
At a certain point in my life I considered working as a cook, I enjoy the art of cooking and when I first got married realized what an important role food has in our lives not only for survival purposes but for nutritional ones as well. I looked for schools that could train cooks in Guatemala but found out that the career was only available then and embedded to other ones like Hotel or Business Management; so I started taking some free courses with a local academy a few years ago. I notably improved my cooking skills and learned some other techniques. Later on and as a part of this other activity I took some independent courses in event planing and I have been able to organize occurrences such as weddings, teenage and bachelor parties, gatherings, and birthdays, finding another way of combining passion and work at the same time.
Another subject I am particularly interested is in Math. Until a few years ago of not being in contact with Mathematics, I came to understand the importance that abstract thinking has in learning many things. I have been taking some classes and I have actually discovered that I also enjoy this area and I am trying to improve my skills in this matter.
