Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor in English Licensure in Translation Master in English Teaching

Mrs. Cynthia Chaves

I am a Costa Rican teacher who loves talking about her country while enjoying the experience of learning from other cultures. As a cultural ambassador, I make sure to open my students' and colleagues' minds about alternate forms of sharing knowledge relating to other countries and their ways of living. This is a plus for the position I hold at school as an ESL Teacher due to the fact that my students can learn about other geographical locations while showing pride of their own countries of origin. 

Regarding the academic field, I hold a Bachelor's degree in English, a Licensure in Translation and a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign/ Second Language. I have worked in Costa Rica at private and public high schools, as well as at private and public universities for more than 17 years. In the USA I previously taught ESL at Four Oaks Middle School. 

I am very willing to learn all I can from my students and co-workers about the educational field; in the same way, I want to exchange information which can in the short and long term be beneficial both for the students and the staff members at Johnston County Public Schools. 

For the upcoming school year, I will continue to work in my ESL classes with a selected group of newcomers to the country. Also, I will continue providing support in math classes in a co-teaching environment. Finally, I will work in an inclusion English class to further support the students' knowledge and learning of the target language.
