My name is Sharla or Yao Shasha as my Chinese friends call me, and I am a teacher from New Zealand!
I have a bachelor's degree, an advanced teaching diploma, and a fun, caring personality. I have been teaching for the past 5 years (both online and in the classroom) and have taught a range of topics to elementary and high school students all over the world! Currently, I teach 3rd and 4th grade at a North American school in Mexico.
I love all animals, but my favorites are cats, elephants, and ducks. I also enjoy traveling, hiking, the beach, and food! I have hiked through the Himalayan mountains, visited hundreds of amazing beaches across Europe, South East Asia, Australasia, and Central America and some of my favorite foods are; ceviche, tacos, dumplings, fresh seafood, fresh fruit, peaking duck pancakes, ban xiao, Thai curry, fresh spring rolls, cheese, spicy salsa and much, much more!
As a teacher, I am very patient and believe that children learn best when they are relaxed and having fun. I am very passionate about education and love building a rapport with my students and watching them learn and develop.
