Bio

I’ve 37 years of experience in education. I´m a passionate teacher and I've got a Master Degree in Education with emphasize on values and a postgraduate degree in Spanish as a Second Language. I’ve been teaching children, teenagers, and adults. I love all the ages. I promote the new paradigms of education to achieve the XXI Century goals. I believe technology should be part of everyday classes. I’ve been implementing the Flipped Classroom since many years ago and I became a Smart Exemplary Educator, a Microsoft in Education Expert, a Global Goals Ambassador, and an ISTE and OEI member. Elementary Computer Science Teacher. My goal is to educate native digital learners (generation Z) to be successful in any part of the world. I want to improve quality Education in the world and integrity. I try to reinvent myself and take new challenges. I know that I am working with"Generation Z" that controls five screens at the same time, works with images, creates content, is realistic and works to obtain personal success. I put in practice different methodologies (Inverted Class, Project Based Learning, debates) that prepare students for the labor field taking into account current reality and promoting skills that allow us to be successful tomorrow at any point on planet Earth. My role is that of a moderator or guide and the children learn in spaces flexible, relaxed, exploring topics related to the current world and also through the game.
