Welcome WikiEducators,

Gladys Gahona is a mexican private teacher. In 1981 she graduated in chemical engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY), in Mérida, Yucatán, México. In 2002 she graduated in Technology Management at UADY.

For over thirty years she has taught mathematics, physics and chemistry. Currently she owns a small academy where she teaches: AF Centro. She has been in touch with computer technology since 1980 and started navigating the Internet since the early 90's.

The knowledge she has gained in teaching/tutoring comes from her personal experiences and self-studies. She has also been a self learner in computing, web programing, ITC and web 2.0 platforms and tools.

As a perseverant learner and passioned for challenges, she has spent thousands of hours seeking new ways to integrate personal learning experiences into her teaching activities.

She has devoted her professional life to her two passions: teaching and learning.

I do love maths, chemistry, physics and teaching. I had excellent professors supporting me, most of them I still remember and honor. I'm certain it is one of the main reasons.
