Profile

I am originally from Madrid and joined the department in 2011. I have been teaching Spanish since the late 90's and before starting this job, I worked as a learning support worker and an IT teacher.

While at Sheffield, I completed a Master's degree in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and wrote my dissertation in the use of Blended Learning in Languages.

I am particularly interested in the benefits of technology and its applications in the learning and teaching of languages and, over the years, I have integrated the use of technology, flipped learning and blended learning to the modules I teach. This interest has led me to deliver papers across the country and in Spain talking about e-learning and its pedagogical applications. 

I also became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2018.

Teaching activities

I am responsible for the whole Level 2 in Spanish, which includes Post-Beginners and Post A-Level language modules.

My teaching includes oral and languages classes as well as delivering grammar lectures.
