𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐚 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐳 23 years old, was born in Alabama but raised in New Mexico with her Mexican parents. Her parents would always go back and forth to Mexico since they lived very close to the frontier. She was raised with English and Spanish as her native languages. Since she was very young, she knew she wanted to be a teacher, she enjoys spending time with children, and she is known for being very patient with them, that’s why she decided to go to college and major in Education. Since she began college, she started working as an ESL online teacher which she has been doing for 2 years. She has also been a volunteer for 5 years, teaching various subjects across the country of Mexico, during her free time. She has a 7-year-old niece with ADHD, daughter of a single mom, a full-time worker, and a student. She helps her niece with online school and homework. She is glad she chose this career path where she can help others learn something new but especially those in need. She believes that her job as a teacher is to be a guide, learning from them is just as important as what they learn from her. She also believes each child has their own abilities and struggles, she can understand that, help them grow and blossom inside the classroom no matter what their learning skills are. The joy of seeing a kid being excited from something they learned, even if it was as simple as a single word or sentence, is incomparable.
