Me llamo Saroa. Soy maestra de primaria. Llevo trabajando en la educación durante casi 12 años. He enseñado a alumnos de todas las edades, desde pre kínder hasta jubilados. Me encanta enseñar y ver como mis alumnos avanzan y disfrutan con las materias. Me adapto y modifico mis estrategias dependiendo de las características de mis alumnos, construyendo clases llenas de ejemplos y situaciones prácticas que hacen que mis alumnos entiendan e interioricen los contenidos con facilidad y confianza.
