Mexico

Choreographer & Educator in Socio-Pedagogical Projects.

Mexican choreographer and educator certified by UDK (Univesity of Arts of Berlin). Did my internship at the well-known school of dance TanzTangente Berlin.  I started my journey in Education in 2012, since then I've been part of several Socio-Pedagogical Projects.

Working in two different scenarios, Mexico and Germany, has given me a wider understanding of education around the world. I define Education as the most important right of Humanity that's why I aim to support every effort in this matter.

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

It inspires me to know that there is an existing community that works on creating creative innovations that are leading us to have an Education of the 21st-century. I do want to be part of this community because I believe in a joint effort towards a common goal.

How can education support students to flourish?

In order to support every child's flourish Education can be supportive and inclusive. It can also provide free spaces where the students can develop their talents. Implement reflection and let every student discover in which ways do they want to improve their lives and their environment. Education can provide trainers that guide instead of conduct.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation will allow us to find unexpected and creative solutions to existing issues and therefore is the key to lead the change in education in order to reach creative innovations that bring us into the Education of the 21st-century.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

SICOEM. Is a pedagogical approach that reaches the child through music. It is empowering how music contributes to kids' development. Initiative for Peace. They empower youth to reach one of the most important achieves in life -PEACE-. It gives me hope Community Share. Having a human library will let the kids learn helpful skills and also lets 'specialists' share their knowledge.
