Hello, I am Makki (short for Macarena) and I am a pre-school teacher. I have over 7 years of experience working in international schools with children under the age of 7 and also teaching a second language to pre-school and primary students. I have recently finished my Masters in Social and Educational Action in Barcelona, to add to my degree in education

Teaching is my passion, and I consider curiosity to be the door to knowledge, growth, and new adventures. When a child is curious about something that they see around them, they will start asking questions and creating the most fascinating theories to explain what is happening, which is the most important tool for everyday learning.

I believe it’s our responsibility as teachers and parents to preserve the sense their sense of wonder and let them question everything they see, smell, touch, and taste. Because in the end, a curious child will become a curious adult, and a curious adult will continue innovating for a lifetime.

I am crazy about arts and crafts and I’m also a “DIY-girl”! When I’m not working, you will probably find me in a crafts store or looking up ideas for home decoration and organization on Pinterest. I also love to do different types of sports and travel around the world.
