Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Dafne Minera

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as your third grade child’s teacher. My name is Dafne Minera. I am a Costa Rican born and raised educator who chose the United States as her second home since 2005. I have a bachelor’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) from the National University of Costa Rica and a master’s degree in TESOL from Greensboro College. 

My passions are my family and my community. I like to use my skills in languages and art to serve others and hopefully make a difference in someone else’s life experience. My husband, my son and I like to travel around the world. We especially enjoy trying traditional dishes and discovering new flavors.

Whenever we meet, do not hesitate to ask me about tropical Costa Rica, its sloths, macaws, toucans… its flora and fauna. If you have any questions, contact me at
