I enjoy the inclusive environment of the SFS because it offers a safe space to everyone who enters its doors.
I was born and raised in Costa Rica, where I found a vocation as a Missionary for The Salvation Army. This organization educated and trained me to lead social work and youth programs. I served for 11 years as director for various social work projects.
Back in 2002, I chose to move to the USA. I began working at my family business in San Francisco’s Mission District. After managing it for years, I decided to follow my heart back to what I genuinely love: teaching young people. I spent time teaching at Spanish Infusion School, and when the school closed, I joined The San Francisco School. My studies include an Associate’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development and a Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies with a minor in Educational Studies.
