“When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.” Dalai Lama

I was born in Venezuela from a family with Spanish roots. Reading history was part of my childhood. That experience led me to travel to many different countries and get to know their customs and way of life. Getting to know other people and cultures has been something that has made a difference in me.

Even though I am not currently teaching, it has been a passion all my life. I love to be around kids, and teenagers. I have taken groups of students around the world for study trips and that has made a real change in their lives.
