  • Hola! My name is Cristina, I am 22 years old and I am from Spain. I was born in Madrid but I have been living for 20 years in Alcalá de Henares, a big city near Madrid which is a UNESCO world site.

    I have studied a primary school teaching degree at Alcalá’s University which is one of the oldest universities in Spain. I wanted to be a teacher since I was a kid and I am very happy with my choice, I really enjoy spending time with children and teaching them as much as I can.

    During the last four years, I have been studying in the university but also travelling or living abroad during the summer. I have been working in the USA and in Ireland and my favourites countries that I have visited are Egypt and Turkey. I love travelling, discovering new cultures and meeting new people. I consider myself a cheerful, open-minded, energetic and optimistic girl: I usually have a positive attitude facing life.

    I am always willing to learn since „life as a teacher begins the day you realize that you are always a learner”.
