Hello, My name is Mariela Sobalvarro Jarquín.

Mariela Sobalvarro Jarquín

In my family we are three, my husband (Richard), my daughter (Yolibeth), and me.  I have two dogs. Their names are Luigi and Princess.  I have two sisters, too.  Their names are Indira and Patricia.  Indira lives in the United States and Patricia lives in Mexico.  I have three nephews Alberto, Patrick, and Cristopher.  My family is very small. We are so close.

I have been teaching English for fifteen years.  I learnt English in the university; I studied at UNAN-Managua and my degree is English.  I am a teacher because I like to teach and support the students to improve our country.


I want to work with a Peace Corps Volunteer because it is one way that I can improve my English and learn about strategies to work with the student.

One thing I want people to know about Nicaragua is the delicious food.  My favorite food is chancho (pork) con yuca.
