The Boss in town!!!


As a teacher, I enjoy integrating literature, music, drama & role-play and arts & crafts into my teaching. And among them I devoted to share my love of music with my students throughout this year.
I know they love music as much as I do and I find it as an useful and enjoyable tool for learning therefore I would like to show  some of the highlights of what I lived yesterday. I hope you enjoy it. Here it is the video I recorded.

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band played their longest show ever, at three hours and 48 minutes in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and I was there!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!!!

I’m so happy we won the first place for the “XIX Certamen de Teatro Escolar de la Comunidad de Madrid”, but also two mentions: Best Direction and Best Performance. I’m so happy to be one of the co-directors of the best theatre crew ever!!!

Don’t miss our faces when we heard the news:



Yesterday was our opening day!!!  Lady Nitwit, our adaptation of Lope de Vega’s La dama boba  has taken us six months and lots of time and hard work to get ready, but the result couldn’t be better. The children were so talented and  costumes, lighting, music,… were spectacular.

I’ve never seen an audience that’s so committed to the performers.

Thank you all for your support and for coming!! I hope to see you on Monday when the jury arrives to give us strengt.

I prepared this video with some photos. I hope you enjoy it!!! Music: Granada by Isaac Albeniz and Enrique Granados.
