Meet our team !

Beatriz

My name is Bea, I’m Spanish but I’ve live in Missouri and London. I’m an Early Childhood Teacher and I’ve been working all over Madrid.

As a teacher I like to be a guide that help your kids to learn by exploring the environment. There’s no better way to learn than touching, seeing or experimenting by themselves. It’s important to create a save and creative environment so their knowledge can be potential in all ambiences.

I consider myself a positive and active person. I’m a good listener and empathetic. I’m glad I can be part of these project.

Alba

I’m English Infant Teacher with C1 CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) and Montessori Infant assisstant 0-3. I’ve experience working during 2 years in a Nursery located in  Manchester, Ingland, in an anglosajon environment with children between 0 to 6 years.

I’m cheerful, very patient and with constant work capacity. My purpose is to create a good atmosphere and enjoy the day to day. I consider that the communication between children and adults have to be fundamental, to understand what they need and be able to accompany them at every stage of their lives in a safe and confident way.

I am very excited to work on this new project through the Montessori method, which I trust fully and, of course, I will give my best at all times.

Raquel

My name is Raquel. I’m a early childhood  teacher and Montessori Guide 0-3 by IMI.

I have taken courses on quality care, free movement of the child according to pikler pedagogy, and positive discipline. I have basic knowledge of sign language.

I am a flexible, cheerful person, I like to be in continuous training to be able to offer children and families the best of me.

I am passionate about being part of this educational project and accompanying children in their first experiences from tenderness and respect for their rhythms and needs.

Virginia

My name is Virginia Rojas and I’m cheerful, loving and energetic.

I’m an Early Childhood Education teacher since I’ve got my degree in Alcalá de Henares University in 2014. Since that moment I started working with kids and my name became “Vigi” because it seemed easier to pronounce for the little ones. And it really captivates me!

As I love children and nature I decided to choose the specific mention of Knowledge of the Environment and complement it with Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). I support kids to have the chance to discover the world around them and develop their own different abilities and skills. Also I believe animals are powerful when children interact with them as they promote physical, social and cognitive improvements.

After living in Ireland for a whole year I discovered this lovely language that it’s called ENGLISH, so I decided to be part of it turning into an English teacher and finally study TESOL Certificate Part I.

For all this reasons, I consider myself the most lucky person for being able to dedicate myself to my great passion: Join children in their childhood and watch them discover, learn and be happy.

Inés

I am a Kindergarten Teacher and Montessori Guide 0-3 and 3-6. My passion for respectful education led me to train as a specialist in Educational Neuroscience and in Positive Discipline of Preschool, Family, and Classroom to be able to accompany children in the best possible way as they go through school.

I consider myself a loving, positive and attentive person, with a clear vocation towards education and the Montessori philosophy.

For all this I am very grateful to be able to develop this work in a center like Green Leaves, which gathers and is based on principles so similar to my own.

Adriana

My name is Adriana Julia Preve. I’m an English infant and elementary teacher with a master’s degree  in English as a foreign language.

I’ve been working in bilingual schools since 2003. During these years of teaching experiences, I could live amazing education lessons in Argentina, USA and Spain.

I have always a positive attitude. I am cheerful and energetic. I love teaching and I enjoy sharing time with children.

Susana

Educator and Teacher of Early Childhood Education, Montessori Guide 0-3 and 3-6 by International Montessori Canela, expert in Pikler pedagogy. Child massage technician and Positive Discipline Educator Certified by the Positive Discipline Association.

Dedicated to early childhood education by vocation, I firmly believe in accompaniment based on respect, autonomy, affection and freedom of movement. I consider myself an active person, always wanting to learn, that’s why I like to be in continuous training, to be able to offer the school children the best environment and the best possible accompaniment.

Ana

My name is Ana and I belong to a family of American origin that moved to Spain where I grew up.

I have always felt passion for children since I was a child myself, so choosing Education as my professional career was one of the best decisions I could ever made.

I studied double degree on Primary and Infant teaching in La Salle University and my first job was English assistant teacher in a British School where I came across with Montessori Education.

Since then, I became a 3-6 Montessori Guide in Maria Montessori Insitute of London and fell in love with the “non-conventional” ways of teaching.

I am passionate about children behaviour, observing them, enabling them to be in their natural environment, guiding them to thrive as the unique human beings each one of them are.

I chose Greenleaves as the best place I could find to share the great responsibility of educating my son. Now I am thrilled they chose me to be part of their team as a Children’s House Guide, and share this responsibility with other families as well.

Oscar

From a very young age, the field of education has been present in my life. Grandson and son of teachers, I spent my childhood among books, classrooms, playgrounds and teachers.

I graduated as a primary school teacher from the University of Granada. Even so, along the way, I felt that I had uncovered learning spaces and I combined the degree with different specialties in management of educational projects in preface socio-economic contexts, creation of projects in gender equality and educational contexts of learning – service.

This restlessness and need to look for new educational paradigms led me to cross the ocean and live a few years in Peru, where I was able to specialize as an educator in Positive Discipline for the classroom and parenting in the family. That’s where my vocation to train later as a Montessori Workshop Guide (6 to 12 years old) was born.
I was lucky to be able to work in an educational center that linked the Montessori philosophy with the IB project, so I took the opportunity to train as an IB teacher for the years of primary education.

I am currently studying the Master’s Degree in Educational Treatment of Diversity, seeking to delve a little deeper into the needs of each person and be able to provide, to each child, the best opportunity according to their specific circumstances.

The world of education is a utopia and, as Eduardo Galeano said: “Utopia is on the horizon. I walk two steps, she moves away two steps and the horizon runs ten steps further. So what is utopia for? For that, it’s good for walking.”

Isabel

I consider myself a passionate of education. For that reason  I started studying  Primary Education Teaching.

Due to the high demand for linguistic certification, I decided to travel to the Emerald Island where I met my great passion, Montessori Pedagogy.

This Pedagogy showed me a different outlook in which learning, exploring, thinking and having fun walk together.

That is why I decided to train as an Expert in Montessori Pedagogy. Since then, I have tried in my environment to make childhood something unforgettable.

Ali

My name is Ali and I’m from San Diego, California. I moved to Madrid over 6 years ago and was one of the best decision of my life.

My love for working with children started at an early age and from that I steered towards education. I received a B.A. in Sociology and English at University of Oregon. Then I completed a masters in teaching at the Universidad de Alcalá. I’m currently completing a masters in art therapy at the Instituto Superior de Estudios Psicólogos. I’ve been an elementary school teacher for 5 years now.

The learning process of a children is fascinating to witness and to be part of it, while helping children grow, be creative, learn, develop, and be curious about the world is an absolute honor. In my free time you can find me outside enjoying the sunshine, hiking, biking, swimming, or reading.

Pablo

Sports and education lover. I consider myself an active, hard-working person, always eager to learn, being in continuous training, to offer children the best of me.

I believe in physical education through cooperative work and in a playful way. By learning with the rest of their classmates, children are able to solve the situations that arise together.

I am passionate about being part of the Greenlevaes Montessori, helping in the education of children through sports.

Yamel

Licenciada en Psicología, especialista en educación y Trastornos del Espectro Autista (TEA). Diplomada en Trastorno por Déficit de atención con y sin Hiperactividad (TDA-H)

Apasionada de los procesos de aprendizaje en la infancia, me he formado ampliamente en educación formal y no formal; educación especial, acompañamiento a familias en entornos naturales, neuroeducación, disciplina positiva, metodología Teacch, Montessori, Waldorf y otras pedagogías alternativas.

Tengo la suerte de que mi trabajo me encanta y de haber podido estar en instituciones con profesionales excelentes que han creído en mí, y de los que he aprendido diferentes metodologías de trabajo tanto en México como en España. He trabajado como coordinador, docente y apoyo terapéutico en todas las etapas educativas, desde atención temprana hasta la universidad, tratando de unir lazos entre familias, comunidad, profesorado y alumnado.

Tengo un hijo de 10 años por el que descubrí las tribus de madres y la crianza con respeto y empatía. Soy mexicana y desde hace 15 años resido en Madrid.

En mi juventud fui Scout y desde entonces, me encanta conocer sitios nuevos, hacer amigos, pasar el tiempo en la naturaleza y observar cómo juegan los niños y las niñas.

Soy entusiasta y proactiva. Mi filosofía es trabajar de manera ordenada, constante y “gota a gota”, hasta lograr el objetivo que me propongo.

Creo firmemente que cualquier persona es capaz de aprender, confiando en sus capacidades, brindándole lo que necesita, siendo pacientes y esperando sus tiempos.

Trabajar con el equipo de Greenleaves Montessori es una gran oportunidad de seguir creciendo, aprendiendo y contribuir para que la educación sea un poquito mejor.

Daniel

“Me llamo Daniel, soy profesor y músico profesional. Mi formación se desarrolló en La Escuela de Música Joaquín Rodrigo, en la que, durante más de doce años, pude adquirir conocimientos avanzados de guitarra, solfeo, teoría musical, canto clásico y moderno, informática musical, historia de la música y piano.

Tras completar dicha formación, comencé a sumergirme en la docencia, descubriendo así una nueva pasión. El poder compartir mi saber, mi visión y mi respeto hacia el cuarto arte me llenaba tanto como componer una canción.

Actualmente, tengo el privilegio de formar parte del equipo educativo Greenleaves Montessori, centro en el que la enseñanza y la música se combinan para dar como resultado un aprendizaje dinámico y trascendental.”
