TEACHER ASSISTANTS

We introduce you to our Learning Teacher Assistants, native staff specialized in perfecting our students’ pronunciation and communication skills in English.

In addition to their long experience, they have great creativity in teaching methods and great initiative in the development of activities.

The aim of the center is to promote multilingual learning and a global mentality and visibility that allows them to function adequately in international and multicultural environments.

Hello everyone, I am Susannah, or Miss Susie to our youngest students. I have been Miss Susie for las last 20 years, whilst carrying out different roles in Early Years, working in International, British and Spanish concertado schools in Madrid.  Born in Scotland, I lived in the South of England for most of my life until 2001 I made a change and came to Madrid. Still loving living in this wonderful area, the Sierra of Madrid and am now thrilled to be carrying out teaching support to infants pupils in this innovative, forward thinking school, in English of course!

Hello, I am Shannel Julius, a 3rd year Language Assistant at Laude Fontenebro. Originally from Brooklyn, NY I moved to Spain in 2018 to get a masters in translation. Prior to working at Laude Fontenebro, I had worked in schools in both the United States and other cities in Spain ;what I’ve found at Laude Fontenebro is something truly unique. It’s Laude’s individualized curriculum , dedicated teachers and eager students that has kept me here. This year , I’m working with Early Years and the most joyous part is seeing children I have known since they were 2&3 years old flourish in this loving and nurturing environment.

 

MARK GILES

 

Hello my name is Mark Giles and I am originally from London. I have worked as an Auxiliar at Laude Fontenebro for the last 2 years and previously in the same role in the public system. I specialise in the Cambridge exams, especially PET and KEY and therefore work mainly with 4to, 5to and 6to but also love getting involved in as many other activities as possible.
I have a BSc in Marine Geography from Cardiff University and have worked previously in a school in New Zealand and a variety of different companies in London before moving to Madrid.
I have hugely enjoyed my time so far as an auxiliar, helping the children with their English and other activities. The bilingual education scheme is something I strongly believe in and am proud to be part of.
