My name is Maritza. I believe I have the right mix of skill and motivation to teach kids. I always enjoyed working with children, including my own. Currently, I’m studying child development at the City College Of San Francisco. My eventual goal is to earn my degree in this field.

I did an internship thru City College at the Spanish immersion school – Las Olas. It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot about encouraging children’s cognitive development. We developed one-on-one relationships with the children. These skills will be very useful for me at Shalom School.

In the past, I have worked professionally as a caregiver and as a Spanish teacher. As a caregiver, I was responsible for many aspects of clients’ health and daily activities. In my role as a teacher, I’m patient, motivated, and a friendly person. I feel that my students make significant progress with my help. In addition to my professional experience, I volunteer as a basketball coach at my sons school and enjoy sharing, helping, and playing with children with all their different abilities
