I am a Spaniard born in Madrid who has always believed that creating a collaborative and supportive society is vital to make a better world. However, it was not until I studied social integration that I truly realized I should devote my career to help children and teenagers to fully develop their competences and become good citizens.
I started my career working as a lab technician in the R&D Department of a pharmaceutical company, but that was not really my passion so in my free time I helped children at risk of social exclusion as a volunteer. That volunteering period was a turning point in my professional and personal life. After a few years, I made up my mind and changed my career by embarking on a new journey in London to do so. Over there, I earned my certificate in Teaching Spanish as a foreign language and taught Spanish in an outstanding grammar school. In 2017 I decided to move to Dubai where I feel really fortunate to be able to work at NAS teaching from EYS to secondary school.
Every professional step I have taken has contributed to improve my teaching skills and achieve my personal fulfillment. This life approach is something I like sharing with my students to enhance their lifelong learning competence. Neuroscience research has proved "The brain needs to get excited to learn” and that is exactly what I do to engage my students in learning.
Teaching in an international school, like NAS, is incredibly rewarding for me and I feel really grateful to have the opportunity to help my students evolve and learn from them every day. They make me a better teacher and a better person.
