About Me

Andrea is from Panama and she moved to the United States four years ago to complete her Bachelor’s Degree. She graduated from St. Edward’s University with a major in Interdisciplinary EC-6, and a minor in Special Education. Andrea had the opportunity to work as a sixth grade science and math teacher assistant at one of the best special education schools in New York City. During her free time, Andrea enjoys walking around the city, and exploring new places. Her favorite hobby is finding new restaurants, and writing about her experience at those restaurants. She is looking forward to meet all of you.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to gain experience, and to introduce myself into a new environment where I've never had prior exposure. Having online classes is a plus, and I can invest more time in creating lessons with a deep meaning and life-long lasting impression on my students. I am also excited to be able to work under a mentor where I will gain experience and complement each other's teaching style.
