Meet our team !

Silvia

Teaching is my passion, I love to spend time with children, to play and discover together, to help them find their interests and validate their emotions and to support their learning in their early years.

I am loving and enthusiastic, and I’m looking forward to being a part of their lives and to enjoy, learn and grow together.

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.

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.

Salvi

Children’s educator and IMI Montessori Guide 0-3.

As an educator, my fundamental role is to observe and provide emotional support to children, respecting their learning rhythms and individual interests and always, taking into account their sensitive periods.

I follow different pedagogies such as Montessori and Pikler. I am trained in Positive Discipline in Early Childhood and have taken courses on quality baby care and motor skills and free play.

I feel very fortunate to be able to accompany children during their first years of life and to see them grow up happy and unhurriedly.

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.

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.

María

My name is María, I was born and raised in Spain but I lived for many years in the USA.

I am an enthusiastic and experienced Clinical and Health Psychologist & Montessori Assistant. I am very adept at working closely with children whilst supporting the teacher and managing lesson plans.

I have always been fascinated by psychology and human behaviour. This is why my focus is on the observation and understanding of human behaviour. Children have always been my main motivation because they are the future of this world. My goal is to support the natural development of the human being from birth to maturity, enabling children to become the transforming elements of society, leading to a more harmonious and peaceful world.

I am a dedicated professional that is very excited to be part of this team.

Mari Carmen

Since university, I have been interested in alternative educational methodologies, where respect, freedom of choice, critical thinking, tolerance and autonomy are encouraged.

Through my experience in Mexico as a Montessori guide I invite children to develop their interests by themselves, helping them to develop their potential and reinforcing their personality and self-esteem.

Sandra

I’m a Montessori certified teacher (3-6 yo), with a C2 English Proficiency certificate by Cambridge and 10 years of experience working with children up to 6 years old. I was raised in Colombia, moved to the USA to earn a B.D. in Infant Psychology and started working with children in early development classes. When I became a mom in 2014, I learned about the Montessori Curriculum and got certified through NAMC.

As a mother and teacher, I believe in the power of play and the importance of a nurturing environment where children feel safe and loved.  I strive to provide a holistic environment where children are engaged in fun and age-appropriate activities; a place to grow and laugh, make friends, and learn about our world.

Im very excited to meet you all and be part of Greenleaves Montessori American School.

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.

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.

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.

Silvia

My name is Silvia, I’ve graduated as Elementary teacher at the Autonomous University of Madrid. When I finished my degree, I decided explore new cultures and customs that is why I was living in Mexico and the Netherlands.

After this, I realized that respect for oneself, for the other and for the world is essential to form a better society, so I decided to train as a Montessori Elementary Guide.

I advocate for an accompaniment based on non-violent communication, reflection, play, respect and nature, attending to the individual rhythm of each one.

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.”

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.
