  • Description

    Hello I am a 37 year old single female from the USA and currently live on the Oregon coast. I have an intermediate to advanced Spanish level and have traveled through most of central America.
    I did an internship in Costa Rica during college for 6 months in Monteverde Cloud Forest School as an assistant teacher for first grade. I lived with a host family and still am in contact with many interns from that program.
    In the last 5 years I have been living and working 3 months of year in Xela, Guatemala. In 2014 I opened a a Spanish school with In I was a co-director of a Spanish school for international travelers. My main roll wasstudent coordinator and volunteer project leader. We have temporarily put our project on hold while making improvements on the school this year.
    I have a degree in International Studies from the University of Oregon and I minor in Spanish. I am seeking professional experience in local sustainable community projects and love working with children. I prefer living with families while traveling abroad as it gives you the opportunity to learn about the country and culture through the eyes of the locals. I have 2 to 3 months of available travel time to fully immerse myself in a project and make a difference.
