Teacher Assistant & Apprentice
Sep 2005 - Present

Apprenticeship in the praxis of mystagogy under the spiritual guidance of Rev. Juan Luis Calderón, STL has allowed me to appreciate and reflect on experiential opportunities within the Spanish-speaking community in both, East and West Coasts of the United States. This on-going learning has been pivotal in my professional developing as a licensed massage therapist seeking for relationships present in diverse spiritual traditions and their impact in healthcare.

Teacher Assistantship has allowed me to refine my ability to lead one-on-one and small group lessons, which has been key empowering my abilities as an instructor.

Among the responsibilities entrusted to me in this capacity, I would like to mention:

- Syllabus and course drafting and preparation of conference/lecture/class materials.

- Holding “Office Hours” (virtual or live) for one-on-one tutoring and collecting materials.

- Arranging for media services in the classroom/auditorium.

- Supporting conference/lecture/class speaker/presenter providing information and additional resources for participants.

- Delivering and/or teaching lesson plans for private tutoring provided by speaker/presenter.
