About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is passionate about science and languages. She received a school degree with an emphasis in pedagogy and now she is completing her studies in the education field as a teacher in training.

She created a project in her educational institution designed to develop communication abilities for kids in first, second and third grade by teaching them English.

She loves the process of sharing knowledge and teaching, but what she loves most is that the investigation of pedagogical practices allows her and teachers in general to improve strategies and methods in order to transform society from the classroom.
