"Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on the Earth, for what they believe they will become." Brook Hampton

I am from San Sebastian, a beautiful city located in the North of Spain. I have a Master’s degree in Educational Innovation specializing in Executive Functions and Emotional Intelligence.

I have been teaching for several years in various countries, and that has given me the chance to learn from different educational systems engaging students in their learning process by inspiring them to learn from their own first-hand experiences. 

As a teacher, one of the most important things for me is to ensure my classroom is a safe environment that encourages children to feel part of a community that loves them, listens to them, and respects their thinking.

My classroom is a place in which imagination and creativity have no limits, learning is fun and meaningful!”

I am originally from Ottawa, Canada.  I began my teaching career in 2007 as an English Foreign Language Teacher. I then received my Bachelor of Education in 2010 in primary and junior with a specialization in Special Education. I am a teacher because nothing seems more challenging or rewarding than having the opportunity to have a positive influence in a child’s life.

Observing, and being a part of the process when a child has that “light bulb” moment of understanding is most gratifying because I believe that both our failures and successes help in building a growth mindset. I aim to create a classroom culture where diversity and change is welcomed, and that knowing one’s own character is essential to knowing how one learns best

I have a passion for traveling, yoga, downhill skiing, the outdoors, cooking, being with friends and family.

Wouldn’t life be boring if we all learnt in the same way?
