Trauma Informed Training

A Course All Teachers should Take 

I'm feeling so excited having the opportunity to participate in the Trauma Informed course thanks to a scholarship offered by Bartol Foundation. This will better equip me to deal with children victims of traumatic experience

A blended course very well organized. The manual includes all basic guidelines, guest speakers experts in each of the aspects considered are invited, a series of videos complement the topics, the exercises are directly related to participants' interests, and the participants contribute their experiences in their own individual fields.

This is an extremely informative course, professionally enriching from a variety of perspectives that is bridging for me a gap in my profession.

My first two publications in Philly

Two publications thanks to Drexel University.

As soon as I arrived in Philly, I joined the Writers Room, a group under the wing of the English Department, Creative Writing @ Drexel University associated to Dornsife Center.

One was the result of an experimental workshop at LOLA, combining poetry and collage. The second is a narrative including pictures @ Writers Room.

Also, one of my short stories was published at the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, my alma mater.

Working with children is a serious matter


It doesn't matter their age, children should be exposed to the best academic service to motivate them to continue being creative.

The pictures show the artistic aspect of project base curriculum for preschoolers. These were collaborative pieces where my role was to guide them to create all the segments. My artistic intervention is manifested only assembling these 3-D pieces. Each piece is approx. 25' x  25'
