Ms. Gil is a versatile educator with 13 years of international experience. She completed a degree in Translation and Interpreting in Spanish, English and French at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. As part of her degree, she also studied a year in Dublin City University, Ireland. She then obtained her GTP in Modern Foreign Languages at CILT, London, UK.
Straight after my studies, I moved to England to teach French and Spanish from Year 7 up to GCSE. I taught in the British public system for 8 years at schools in London, Cambridge and Brighton and I was also a certified examiner for GCSE Spanish. Inspired by some adventurous colleagues and willing to continue exploring the world, I then came to Abu Dhabi where I taught the MYP and IB Diploma programmes in a private school for the last 6 years. I have also been an external examiner for IB Spanish for the last 4 years.
I am very excited to work for a Nord Anglia Education school, whom I have many friends happily teaching for around the globe. I am also glad to be a part of the BIS Abu Dhabi family and teach the two programmes I believe best prepare our young generations for the future.
I was born and raised in Gran Canaria, one of the Canary Islands in Spain. I will forever be grateful to my parents who decided to send me every summer from the age of 13 to live and experience life in London with a host family. This is how I started developing my curiosity and love for different languages, cultures and ways of living. Nowadays, I can proudly say I am an eager promoter of my own culture, multiculturalism and open mindedness. These are core values I transmit in my day to day teaching and also when parenting my 2 sons. My eldest, Alberto, will be joining BIS Abu Dhabi next year and is already learning how to say ‘hello’ in the many different languages of his future classmates!
