Esther Rubio Ponce


Languages Learning Coach and MFL Teacher

Ms Rubio Ponce started her teaching career in 1999, having worked in both the Spanish and the British system for many years.

I was born in Malaga, in the South of Spain where I obtained my Bachelor Degree in Humanities at the University of Malaga then went on to complete my teaching qualification at the University of Salamanca. I started my professional career in 1999, working as a Humanities and Language teacher in ‘The British School of Gran Canaria”.

Having worked in both the Spanish and the British system for many years, I have acquired an excellent knowledge of the British National curriculum, some international exam boards (CIE, Edexcel) together with the Spanish educational system.

After working as a senior teacher in charge of validation of British studies in the Spanish educational system and Spanish universities entries for 12 years, my family and I moved to Abu Dhabi to meet new challenges and experiences.

I like to spend my free time with my friends, my husband and my two young children, who are also at BIS Abu Dhabi, enjoy the sunshine, dancing flamenco and cooking… I particularly like discovering about different cultures and visiting museums and art exhibitions!
