Claudia Castellanos

I was born in Bogota, Colombia on May 9th, 1987. I am the oldest of all my sisters. I have 3 sisters, all of them live in Colombia, two of them are engineers and the little one is studying to become also an engineer. I grew up in the same city with my sisters, mother and father. I got a Barchelor degree in Childhool Education in 2010. I came to the United States on the same year and worked as an Au pair for a year in Richmond, Virginia. After that, I went back to Colombia and Worked in private schools for 5 years teaching Enlgish in Elementary grades. At the end of 2015 I traveled to Walsrode, Germany in order to learn some German loanguage and then do a Master degree but I went back to Colombia in 2016. Afterwards, I worked in a private  International school where I got my interest for teaching overseas. This is my second year teaching in Sandridge Elementary and so far has been one of the most significant experiences of my life. 

I love traveling, dancing, dogs, making puzzles, chocolates and off course, talking to and learning with my students. 

The most importat thing in my life is my family.
