MEP Social Studies

I live in Barva de Heredia, and two of my five years of teaching experience has been here at Lighthouse. I love reading about issues of contemporary history, social movements and historical novels. Another passion is soccer which I like to watch and play. As a teacher, I believe in an education for life and the construction of meaningful learning. That is why it is important to know the context of the student since they are the reason for our vocation. Teaching is summarized in the following sentence of Paulo Freire, “Learning is not measured by the number of pages read in a night, nor by the number of books read in a semester. Learning is not an act of consuming ideas, but of creating and recreating them.”
