It took me a while to get organized with everything after coming back from my trip. I enjoyed meeting you all and spending those two days learning together. I felt a new world open to me about libraries and I will appreciate keep learning from all of you more about it.
I am from the central-south part of Chile where almost all my family live. I was a P.E. teacher there for 7 years and worked with students from all levels k-12. I came to Seattle, just visiting my cousin. But life puts you different paths, and here I am,19 years later, married to an American, with two amazing children.
Coming from a family of educators I have been always connected to children. I got my M.Ed. as a School Counselor from U of Washington. I have worked in school settings, counseling agency, DSHS working with families involved with Child Protective Services. Since 2008I have been involved teaching Positive Discipline as a coach and as parent educator. I am working also in the school setting, teaching PD as a Social Emotional curriculum. I brought PD to Chile on 2013, where I started training people as parenting educators. In 2014 I started working with school staff to implement PD at their schools. I have seen the positive impact of this program wherever it is used. I am passionate about it and I think helping our children developing these skills is a gift to them. I am excited to be part of this group with all of you. I am happy to share what I know about Social Emotional Learning and Positive Discipline tools that can help you improve your interactions with tweens and teens. Reaching their minds is important, but I think reaching their hearts is how you really can impact their lives, connection. I am ready to work together in this project. I am a little nervous like many of you, but I think it will be a great experience.
