Sra. Batelman 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."
She writes, "My country of origin is Argentina. I came to the USA in 1975. Before moving to San Diego I lived in New Haven, Connecticut and in Washington DC.
In Buenos Aires, I earned a CPA degree and taught Math and Accounting and in Washington DC, I got a Master's degree in Arts with emphasis in Personal Management. At San Diego State University, I took courses in Pedagogy and Sociology to develop an appreciation and understanding of people of different cultures and traditions.
My teaching experience at Parker gave me the confidence needed to accept a teaching position at the UCSD Extension. Many Parker parents have become my students at the University. A special treat indeed!
Prior to joining the Parker family I worked in business and at different educational programs, including Yale University, Berlitz School of Languages and Gateways Summer School.
My two children, Gabriela and Diego, are working in international affairs in Washington DC."
