Hi, My name's Paula. I'm Mexican. I'm 35 and I'm a teacher of English at my own language center. I'm married, My husband's name is Alfredo.He's 38 and He's a teacher.
My center is small, it's got 3 small rooms and we currently have about 50 students and 2 teachers.
I have been running the school since 2015. Our School is located in San Pedro Pochutla, in the Oaxaca state, about 15 km from the coast, near from beautiful beaches.
The vision of our school is to help general students, and also the poor students to improve their English in life skill.
