It was in Spain where she started her career as PHE Teacher. She believes education is always about relationships and not only being instructors, but mentors, coaches, motivators and lifelong sources of inspiration to the students. Lorena pursues creating, in all pupils, a lifelong engagement with the practice of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle, as well as learning through the game life transferable skills and values, such as respect, cooperation or inclusion, among many others.
During her career she has also been involved in co-curricular activities such as, teaching swimming, Zumba and other Fitness activities. She also has experience in working with people with special needs, immersing them into the practice of physical activity to improve their quality of life. This was one of her most gratifying and fulfilling experiences, as every small step made a positive impact in each individual’s life.
In her free time she loves travelling, swimming, hiking and dancing. She is also a fitness enthusiastic and as a recent hobby, she enjoys surfing in the west coast of Ireland. During winter time, she never misses a ski getaway with friends or family.
Lorena is delighted to be part of the extraordinary endeavor at NAIS Dublin as a PHE Teacher, as well as sharing department with Mr Dunphy and Mr Cross.
