Una Zhou

6th – 8th Grade English Teacher

Ni hao! My name is Xuan and I’m from China. You can call me Una ( U is pronounced like You) as well. I chose Una as my English name as it means unique and special and after I moved to Costa Rica, I came to know this word in Spanish means the number one, I like it even more!

I teach MIddle School English Language Arts and World Studies. I have a bachelor degree in English and I’ve been teaching for more than ten years as it’s always been my passion.

I moved to Costa Rica two years ago. I like hiking in the mountains and taking a walk on the beach. I love the pura-vida life here! 

US accredited, Journey School of Costa Rica’s central tenants continue to be kindness, empathy, compassion and academic excellence. We work closely with Cognia, PBL Works, REGGIO Children and Conscious Discipline.
