Spanish Teacher, Head of Modern Foreign Languages

BA, Masters, PGCE

I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Linguistics and Literature in the Autonomous University of Barcelona.  I received my CAP in Teaching Languages and Literature specialising in Spanish at the same University (equivalent to PGCE).  In 2011 I finished a Masters in Spanish Language Teaching with the University of Barcelona.

I taught Language and Literature in Spain before moving overseas to work as a Spanish teacher at University Language Centre and Orono High School in Minnesota in the USA.  In 2004, I earned a lecturer post at Jilin University in China, and eight years ago I started my career as a Modern Foreign Languages teacher at International Schools.

I am a trained IB Diploma Programme teacher and I have been teaching IB Spanish Ab Initio and Language B as well as IGCSE Spanish for several years in Beijing. I was very happy to have the opportunity to join BSB in 2018.

Since I am from a city next to the Mediterranean Sea, and even though I enjoy living in Beijing with my husband and my son; we won't miss the opportunity to spend a summer near the ocean. I like running around Ritan Park, one of my favourite places in Beijing and reading. My new goals are completing the Great Wall Half-Marathon and improving my French language skills. I am now reading some Patrick Modiano’s books and rediscovering Leo Carax, Éric Rohmer and Kiéslowski’s old movies.
