Nancy Pulecio Vélez entrevista a Gloria Baena Cardona. Escritora, profesora y consejera. Autora de 4 libros especiales para niños:
“I am a Colombian citizen; I graduated from Preschool Education in 1984. Since then I work with children in preschool ages, with responsibility, dedication and commitment.
For over 20 years, I have been researching about thinking skills and construction of the language with the aim of optimizing the learning process; committing myself with my work as a teacher.
This was the motivation that led me to create a program to teach young children to read; my project is called Vocalina (Vowel fairy). Through a narrative story, puppets, puppetry, puzzles among others; children learn to read by increasing comprehension based on phonological awareness.
I have written several children’s stories focused on values and the development of the human being self-esteem. Norma Editores, in Colombia, has published one of my books, for the Latin American market. The title is Invitación a la fiesta del Gran Gorila (Invitation to the party of Great Gorilla). In addition, other stories has been published in the United States in 2016, “La Búsqueda” (The Search) and “El Cangrejo Peregollo” (Peregollo the Crab).
Over the years as an educator I have taught workshops and conferences to parents and teachers, about the Creativity and the Learning Skills develop through reading for small children.
My biggest motivation is to create young readers and writers to develop autonomy, thinking skills, critical judgment; and be entitled to be people with access to literacy.
I look forward to introduce the use of my methods and programs to a larger audience in a very near future.
In 2013 I moved to Miami, looking for better opportunities and to have the chance to open my Programme to a other market. Since then I have been working as a Spanish teacher and a counceler. Currently I am working at Imagina Nature Based Cooperative Program as a Counceler.
