One night, I dreamed of being a researcher, and today I’m…
My hearth is at the school, the school is my home. Most of my memories as a child are related to school. They are not only of the things that happened to me, they’re also of people, colours, smells, and a never-ending stream of emotions… I think that’s the reason I always connected well with my inner child, and with the children that appeared in my life.
One day a man arrived at the UC junior school. A wise man, crazy for childhood, and a school lover: Alfredo Hoyuelos. He taught us the path to listen to kids. This is when I began researching, and I haven’t stopped since.
Every day is a surprise, even if I sometimes end exhausted: Take our job seriously in school, but always with a laugh! Because… I’m a bit mischievous! I like to laugh, tell stories and listen to music at full volume
