About Myself

What would my Infant Education teacher say if she saw me right now? I am thirty-six years old and I am from a little town called Castellón. I graduated with a Degree in Law and I worked as a lawyer for a couple of years. Although I came to be very involved in environmental law, my lifelong passion for music, made me focus on the piano. I came to the Balearic Islands to work as a piano teacher and it was then, that I discovered my second passion, Education. I soon realised I had never been given a good insight into it. Despite my efforts, I needed to improve and here I am, back at University! Since I started Infant Education, I’ve been able to put into practice what I’ve been taught. Indeed, I’ve started noticing wonderful little changes in our Music School and I feel very pleased about that. I am really looking forward to learning enough to achieve my goal, which is as simple as feeling proud of being a good teacher.

            Education has changed dramatically in recent years. New methodologies are used in our schools but many people still think that traditional methodologies are better than modern ones.
            Fist of all, most of our teachers studied in a traditional way and so they know how to cope in that environment. In a traditional system you only use one book in which you can find “almost everything”. You do not need to spend an immense sum on school supplies.
            On the other hand, new methodologies allow students to learn by themselves. Although the teacher still represents knowledge, she or he becomes an aid to her or his pupils. Indeed, they become the main protagonists of their own learning process.
            In my opinion, modern methodologies prepare us for modern life. They give us resources to solve our daily problems. I am convinced that they help us to be competent citizens. Would you keep on learning in a traditional way? Would it be the best option for you?


Dear Mary,
Thank you very much for your last email. It’s always great to hear from you! I’m so sorry I haven’t answered before but I’ve been really busy. As you know, I’ve just started a degree in Infant Education and I can hardly find a moment to take a break.
My experience at University is much better than I had expected. I’ve been really lucky! I have met wonderful classmates from the very beginning. In fact, I’m having a great time this school year. I’m trying to take advantage of each lesson although sometimes I wish there were more hours in a day!!!
What about you? How are you getting on with your new job? I’m sure you’ll do your best!
I should get back to my books now if I want to pass my exams. I hope we can meet soon!
Keep in touch! Missing you so much,
                       Love you lots,
