I studied Science all the way to Doctarate level only to turn my back on science and dedícate my working life to children. I was a youth worker in Ireland with Youth Work Ireland, Galway where I had the opportunity to set up and run the shOUT project. Here in Spain I work as a teacher in a non directive democratic school. I also run Creative Education workshops based on Arno Stern´s work for children and adults in Ecosomnis. Once a week I share my passion for hiking with a group of children and parents that I lead.
Most of all, we work as mums.
