Director de grupo

My name is Gustavo Adolfo Obando Duran, and I would like to welcome all the IBS community to this school year 2018-2019. I will have the honor to be the home room teacher for 6th grade A. This year I will be in charge of teaching the subjects of science for 6th and 7th grades, as well as Language Arts for 6th grades. I will also be in charge of the BEO experience and other School Projects requested by our institution. I have worked for bilingual schools for 15 years, 11 of them at the International Berckley School, where I have had the blessing to teach different subject areas as well as different responsibilities.

Even though I studied mechanical engineering, I have always worked as a teacher, which I believe is my purpose in life. I have a TEFL preparation Course (Teaching English as a foreign language), 5 BEO participations, different participations in Models of United Nations with several academic awards, as well as being a tutor for forums, achieving special recognitions for outstanding presentations and best speech. I have received special recognition for  best participant in the  International Summit for Language Teachers in the State of Texas in the United States in the year 2017, and was awarded Best High School Teacher of the year in 2017-2018. Finally, I would like to add that my motto is: "Teaching is not what I do, it is my passion".
