"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

Ane Echeberría Ibáñez

I am from San Sebastián, 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 a teaching assistant for Group 2A. This is my eleventh year of being an educator.

I am originally the Philippines, and I have worked in international schools in Asia and the Netherlands. I came to the Netherlands seven years ago to do a master’s in Child Development and Education because I am passionate about the Early Years.

I advocate for student voice, and I believe that young minds are far more capable of higher-order thinking when given agency of their learning.

In my free time, I like to read fiction, enjoy food, and travel.
