My name is Irene Asturias de Navas. I was born in Antigua, Guatemala in 1969 from a Guatemalan father and a Costa Rican mother. In my childhood and adolescence I lived in United States, Uruguay and Peru. I am a happy Costa Rican wife, mother of 9, grandmother of 6. I am very excited that I recently moved to Tyler, Texas with part of my family to be a Bilingual Teacher at Bell Elementary. I love Education and its power in the real life. I believe in myself. I believe in my colleagues. I believe in my students and their families. We can achieve great things together this year!
