Liliana has been working at Francis Parker School since 1988. She says she is passionate about working at Parker because "of our diverse student body and the support and camaraderie from colleagues and parents."
A native of Argentina, she came to America in 1975. Before moving to San Diego, she lived in New Haven, Connecticut, and Washington, DC.
In Buenos Aires, she earned a CPA degree and taught math and accounting. In Washington, she received a master's degree in arts with emphasis in personal management. At San Diego State University, she took courses in pedagogy and sociology to develop an appreciation and understanding of people of different cultures and traditions.
She says her teaching experience at Parker gave her the confidence needed to accept a teaching position at the UCSD Extension, where many Parker parents become her students.
Before joining the Parker family, she worked in business and in different educational programs, including Yale University, Berlitz School of Languages and Gateways Summer School.
Her two children, Gabriela and Diego, are working in international affairs in Washington DC.
