My name is Carmen. I have been working with the Pembroke team since 2019 and I am Mom to my little girl, Julia. I'm from Valencia, Spain where I studied a degree in Speech Therapy and worked in voluntary programs with children and adults. Through this work I came to realise that my real passion was to specialise in teaching children, respecting and taking into account their natural development. After qualifying in Early Childhood Education, I worked in a pre-school setting for several years in Valencia. While I enjoyed this thoroughly, I always had an interest in learning more about different education methodologies.
From the moment I arrived in Dublin I started working in a pre-school center while at the same time studying Montessori Teaching in Portobello. This mixture of working and learning offered me a unique insight to understanding the differences in methods and highlighting the benefits of Montessori, all the while enjoying the time spent in every classroom.
I strongly believe that all children are unique and are destined to do wonderful things in the world. As a teacher, I want to be a guide for the children so that they discover their interests and acquire the necessary skills to face life. I am very pleased to be part of Pembroke and the fabulous team here, looking forward to contributing to the ethos of preparing the children not just for school, but for life.
