About me

Hello everyone! You may call me teacher “Son Goku.” I am a 27-year-old Mexican American teacher based in Hanoi, Vietnam with 3 years of teaching experience. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelor in International Business Administration. I am an adventurous, optimistic and friendly individual. Since a young age, my interest and energy were always spent outside, being active, making new friends, and exploring the limits of my imagination; my curiosity and courage constantly pushed me out of my comfort zone. I learnt to adapt, face and overcome new challenges by looking up to my parents. They are both educators in different fields. They have constantly shown me that the only real limits are the ones you set for yourself. Through my own professional experience, I have learnt that dreaming big brings positive results. Through my personal experience and by traveling, I have found that each encounter, conversation and person we meet is an opportunity to learn, adjust, grow and improve ourselves.

I am the founder of Dreamland Eco English. Dreamland strives to educate young learners through real life experiences and hands-on collaborative projects, while being sustainable and caring for the environment around us. Our outdoor lessons offer students real experiences and real face to face conversations. This method ignites their curiosity and eagerness not only with learning English, but also to develop their skills, attributes personal interests and strengths.

My mission is much more than simply improving the English level of my students. I want each one of my students to be confident enough to be the star in the room; to be eager to speak their minds, listen to others and share their ideas with the world while believing in themselves. By exposing them to real life problems which need real solutions, I want my students to act, not wonder, furthermore I want them to lead by example and help those in need. 


Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

Since I've joined this community I have had nothing but amazing opportunities to meet like-minded people that are passionate about education and making a difference in the world. I believe that through collaboration, determination and consistency we will be able to tackle not only the problems that our respective communities face, but also our generation.

Global Education week in Helsinki this past November 2019 was an experience of a lifetime. Being amongst inspiring educators and innovators from across the globe and all fields was inspiring to say the least. By sharing ideas and connecting we had an infinite pool of knowledge and experience all in one room. 

Going forward I look forward to keep connecting with fellow ideologists across the globe. I believe that together, we will be able to impact our world in a positive and meaningful way, we will be able to continue improving the educational system for our next generation and we will resolve the issues that our current generation is facing.
