Core Values

I am Costa Rican, I have been married for 20 years and I have two children; Claudia who is 16 and Santiago who is 15.
In 2003 I started working in the area of education as a Montessori Guide. From 2008 to 2014 I worked in the area of Physical Education in LIS as a teacher and sports coordinator. These were years full of emotions, sports, and spiritual growth. In 2014, my family and I went to Colorado to study Theology and Bible at Denver Seminary for a period of two years.
This year, LIS gave me the opportunity to teach Core Values, a subject that, through biblical principles and values, intends to train human beings, leaders and successful professionals, with a high moral code that allows them to excel in what they do. This opportunity is invaluable since we are in a society where moral values have been lost and the pressures that surround our young people are very negative and powerful.
I love young people, I like to interact with them and influence their integral growth in one way or another. I also love sports of all kinds, volleyball, hiking, mountain biking, swimming and when it is possible a little snowboarding.
It is a huge blessing to be in LIS again.
