    PE Teacher

    Virginia Gomez Sanz

    I studied a BA in Primary Education, major in Physical Education.   When I did my internship, I realized that I would like to teach both, primary and secondary students.  Therefore I continue my studies doing a BA in Sports and Exercise Science also at Francisco de Vitoria University. (Madrid, Spain).  Once I finished my BA and obtained the official teaching license, I started working as a physical education teacher in a school back in Spain. 

    I combined it with my job as an educator and manager in the Real Madrid Foundation,  where I coordinate and developed summer camps and projects in Singapore, China, and Spain. This is how I started in educational projects overseas.
