Ofelia graduated from Universidad de Monterrey with a Bachelors degree in Communication and Information and an Associates degree in Education Management, Administration, and Educational Trends. She has a Masters degree in Family Education Advice from the Instituto Europeo de Estudios de la Educacion. The goal of the school and its programs is to facilitate full circle communication between families and schools. During her Masters work, Ofelia learned about how the early brain develops and how to teach in a developmentally appropriate way for each level. She understands and has vast experience with the ideal periods in a child’s life to teach and guide them toward specific knowledge and skills.
Ofelia has a second Masters degree in Management and Supervision in the Education Sector, Teaching and Resource Management from the Universidad de Navarra. In addition, she has an Associates degree in Human Motivation and Personal Development from the IPADE Business School. She has shared her knowledge from these degrees through providing trainings for families in order for them to learn about ideal life patterns to best serve the human being, from early childhood to adulthood.
Ofelia furthered her education through receiving an Associates degree in Special Education and Neuromotor Development at Centro Educativo Integral de Desarrollo Human Internacional A.C. She then came to the United States to implement a program that helped identify and treat common neuromuscular deficiencies in childhood.
Throughout the time Ofelia was a student, she was constantly putting her education into experience. She has been a teacher of all ages, from preschool to college level, and she has found that early childhood is her absolute favorite age to teach. She enjoys how children are like sponges and absorb everything. They are like open books–they share their feelings and curiosity with everyone around them and light up the day and the world with their happiness.
Ofelia lives by a particular quote from Madre Teresa de Calcute, “El due no vive para servir, no sirve para vivir.” This translates to say that we must live our lives to serve others–if not, our life has no real meaning.
Ofelia was born in Durango, Mexico. She recently got married; she has a 24 year old daughter who lives in Australia, a 22 year old son who lives in Monterrey, Mexico and a 17 year old stepson here in Austin.
