Irene Garcia Moreno


Teacher of French and Spanish and Secondary Global Campus Leader

Irene studied French Philology and English Philology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and spent a year in Paris, studying language and literature at Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. During her studies, Irene started her training in values-based education while volunteering with a local children's organisation. She then completed a Master’s Degree in Secondary Teacher Training, specialising in Foreign Languages at the Universitat de Barcelona. She was clear in her goal of becoming a teacher; it had always been her vocation. 

After learning Russian, Mandarin, and Basque at the Official School of Languages, she decided to complete a research Master’s Degree in Multilingual Communication at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona to further theorise her linguistics knowledge. Irene taught Modern Languages in different schools in Spain and the UK before coming to China to work at Qingdao Concord College of Sino-Canada. There, she started implementing the SIOP model for differentiated instruction and assessment in her lessons to cater for her students’ needs. She also led a variety of ECAs and took part in the organisation of school festivals. In 2016, she joined BISS Puxi to teach Spanish and French, and started collaborating in the Duke of Edinburgh expeditions as well as helping to organise Eco Club initiatives. In 2019, she was granted the role of Secondary Global Campus Leader to organise the Tanzania Expedition, lead activities promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and support the students and colleagues involved in the Global Challenge and other Global Campus competitions. 

Beyond languages and communication, Irene is passionate about literature and music, and attends all sorts of artistic and cultural events to make the most of Shanghai’s enriching environment.
