QAIS Staff Profile of the Week – Jessica Vargas, Grade 2 Teacher
What is your favorite family occasion and why?
My favorite family occasion is being home for Christmas. It has been my favorite holiday since I was kid and when I started working abroad (something I enjoy immensely). I have sacrificed many other family occasions and moments so I always make sure to go home for Christmas. I love everything about it from listening to Christmas songs to decorating the Christmas tree, to making too many tamales and champurrado, but above all making memories with my family!
What is your favorite traveling experience and why?
I absolutely love to travel and learn about new cultures, traditions, try new flavors and just see the world, but the best part of it is doing it with your best friend. Cecilia and I are always ready to go on new adventures, take a million pictures to capture moments, and explore the world together. We have visited 24 countries together and cannot wait for all the other adventures awaiting for us.
