We have the collaboration of an administrative body made up of 5 members, the operational body with 4 members and a faculty made up of 19 teachers, professors, and assistants.

Multiculturalism also prevails among Dolphin’s and Pacific collaborators, out of 28 collaborators only 9 are Costa Rican, reaffirming once again the richness of learning at our institution.

Each teacher and professor on campus makes a sum of more than 130 years of experience, professionalism, and vocation in charge of the educational process of their students.

Dolphin’s and Pacific teaching staff have the experience and motivation that a student always has behind them throughout their individual and personalized learning process.

"Teaching is training other people with a vocation.
Teaching is an activity that is carried out in conjunction with home and school, it is an experience that is based on love, tolerance and commitment. When I watch my students develop their capabilities, accomplish their accomplishments, and be amazed at what they do, there are no words to describe how special it is to see them as the wonderful beings that are unique and special."

To educate according to T Marco:
... "is to be a forger of new perspectives, of social changes and of good. It is to train men and women with a spirit of good, who are consolidated in fundamental values, such as the creation of a better world in which we want to live ... "

First and foremost, being a teacher is more than just imparting subjects; it's about being a guide, a role model, and a support for students. Being part of the learning and growth process of young minds is incredibly rewarding. Witnessing my students develop new skills, gain self-confidence, and discover their potential fills me with joy and satisfaction.

Moreover, being a teacher allows me to be an agent of change in society. I firmly believe in the power of education to transform lives and communities. Through education, we can inspire future generations, foster understanding and respect among cultures, and contribute to the development of a fairer and more equitable society.

I am a strong believer in integral health and movement. 
As a psychologist it is my goal to instill in the younger generations a healthy mindset to carry on through their lives. It is imperative not just for the individual, but for society at large that we train our young minds to be psychologically healthy and ready for everything that comes their way in life.

Teacher Lorena Palafox

Elementary School Math & Progrentis

I am convinced that children are like seeds that, if we water them with love and patience, they blossom and transform into beautiful and healthy flowers, active citizens committed to society and nature, autonomous agents of change who know their virtues and are self-assured. It is a privilege to be part of their formation and to awaken in them a curiosity for learning, with them being the protagonists of their own learning experiences. I will endeavor to provide them with tools to face a future that comes with challenges unknown to the world today, and I will accompany them in the formation of their judgment.

Teacher Johnny Benavides

School & High School Language Arts

I found in teaching the opportunity to use art and spirituality as a way to understand and support the human condition. When I was at the University, I studied that pedagogy and didactics are a type of art, that was the moment where I found myself interested in this profession. I feel that spending time with children is a healing therapy. I really like understanding the mind, and every time I teach I find myself into a constant research that I intrinsically enjoy, therefore I consider myself an experiential, eclectic and alternative teacher.

This beautiful institution has allowed me to develop as a professional and acquire unforgettable experiences both as a person and as a teacher. What I enjoy most about working here is when we do a project and when I congratulate them for achieving something new. It fills me with excitement to see the entire process of growth and development of students, to see every step they take, and to know that I am part of those new learnings. It motivates me to continue doing my job with the utmost love. To the directors and colleagues, for every word and display of affection that motivates me to continue, for being the best leaders of this institution, it will always be my second home.

To be a teacher is both a responsibility and a blessing. Of course, our job is to teach the content of the lessons, but we also have a responsibility regarding education in values. By modeling patience, kindness, and respect, we can prepare our students to be citizens of the 21st century.
