Hola Glimpsers! I am super excited to share this amazing experience with you all! I can’t believe the time has almost come go on this adventure I look forward all the amazing challenges, memories, laughs and smiles we will all share. I look forward meeting all of you and can’t wait to see how this trip changes us all.
Now little about myself… This is my first trip with Global Glimpse however this is my second trip to the Dominican Republic! I studied abroad during college and taught soccer clinics at local schools and orphanages; it has been one of the best experiences of my life. I am local bay are kid who grew up in San Jose, went to St. Mary’s College of California for my B.S in Psychology and to San Jose State University for my M.A in Counseling Education. I have worked in the education world for the past 7 years, 5 years as an Academic Counselor and most recently a teacher at Andrew P. Hill High School in San Jose: 2 years teaching Special Ed English! I love my job and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Some of my interests include music I love it (I sang in choir and played the flute throughout middle school and high school). I also am one of the biggest Disney fans, I have a season pass and yes I have been to Disney World (multiple times)! My students say I am a “kid at heart!” I take that as a compliment and own it! I am also into running I have completed a couple half-marathons (13.1 miles) and am looking forward to my next challenge of running 19.1-miles at… of course DISNEYLAND! I speak fluent Spanish, love to read and enjoy life! I suppose that is all for now, you will be hearing from Sia or myself very soon!
