Lindberg Valladares
Education Specialist and Team Leader

I am Lindberg Valladares, I am 35 years old and I work as an Education Specialist and team leader for PIER. I was born in Tegucigalpa but I spent my childhood in a huge farm near Trujillo. I moved to La Ceiba at the end of my adolescence. 


I have worked in so many areas - sales, meat business, construction and manufacturing, and now education, I am also a law student, so reading is my thing. I must say that working for PIER is so far the most gratifying job area I have ever had, the kids facial expression when they see us, plus the hundreds of hugs I get in the classroom, makes my day.

I was born in San Pedro Sula, but I was raised on the island of Roatan in the community of Sandy Bay. I’m 26 years old. My favorite sports are baseball and football. My dream is to travel to Switzerland. 


I was a volunteer at the PIER Sandcastle Library and I worked part time in the library.  One of the founders, Miss Cam, embraced me and encouraged me to be part of the team and that helped me to stay as an employee.


They moved me out of the Library to the Bookmobile. I remember my  first day as it was amazing seeing the kids so happy  - it made me very happy and I fell in love with my job. I love working and helping the kids. I love working for PIER because of the impact that we have with the kids and the teachers.

I am a Librarian for the Sand Castle Library. I am a talented teacher and librarian, and I enjoy using my skills to contribute to the exciting activities that happen every day at the Sand Castle Library. I graduated from the Instituto Jose Santos Guardiola in 2008 and from the Escuela Normal Mixta del Litoral Atlantico, in Tela, Atlantida (SEDE Roatan) as a Bilingual Teacher in 2012.

I am obsessed with all things teaching-related and I spend my free time working and developing my own teaching materials. I enjoy watching the History Chanel, listening to audible books and spending time with my kids.

I am from Diamond Rock in Santos Guardiola where I attended primary school, followed by secondary school in Oakridge. In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer and basketball. I first came to know about PIER as a youngster - my sisters worked in the Bookmobiles and, in time, they introduced me to Cam and Ted . I enjoy my job because of the reading skills the kids can develop by having books made available to them and I can help with that.
