Originally from Argentina, Claudia taught Spanish and English as a Second Language in Argentina and in Mexico before coming to Vermont. Since her arrival, she has taught Spanish and Social Studies at junior and high school levels, as well as social geography, multiculturalism, globalization, and global terrorism courses at Green Mountain College. During the summer months, Claudia teaches in Argentina.
Claudia holds a BA in Social Studies/Education from College of St. Joseph. Currently, she is completing graduate studies in Globalization at Dartmouth College, focusing her research on Latin American politics, social justice, and post-conflict development after spending three years doing fieldwork in Lima and Ayacucho, Peru. She was accepted to a post-graduate advanced study program on Migration, Mobility, and Intercultural Processes in Latin America at the Latin American Social Sciences Institute (FLACSO) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
When she is not reading, planning classes, writing or researching, while drinking maté, Claudia loves to dance, to which her students can probably attest, hike and snowshoe around Killington, make empanadas, and travel to Latin America whenever she gets a chance.
