Patri is a teacher of hearing and language plus therapeutic pedagogy in love with special education, new technologies. She dreams every day of an inclusive society.
You say in your blog that you have the best job in the world, what do you mean by that?
Learn from my students, awake our imagination and creativity, express feelings and emotions, enjoy our company I can not ask for more!
“I try in each session of hearing and language become an adventure. For that reason, I have a priority to meet their needs and interests, thus, to be able to respond to them. Developing inside and outside the classroom a pleasant and motivating environment, which facilitates the emergence of a significant and generalized learning.”
‘We find you in almost all social networks, do you think that all networks can bring anything to education?
Yes, I can comment on my experience a very positive aspect of the teacher’s presence on social networks is: learn from others, share, exchange ideas and experiences, meet teachers from all over the world is enriching. Having that “virtual faculty” allows you to live situations that sometimes in your real cloister are much more complicated to find.
Similarly, form our professional digital identity, it is a key point.
Moreover, I am on social networks like Instagram and Snapchat to share and disseminate our adventures in #MiAulaDeAlMola and to know and be able to answer the questions of my teenage students and generate in them the proper use of the social networks.

“Energy … I think the vocation can do everything. I am always willing to learn and know the largest possible number of tools and methodologies that allow me to provide the most appropriate educational response to each of my students (I call love). Working with such a diverse student warrants. Similarly, for cooperative work with my fellow center and families, who are constantly present in my educational work.”
I have always been very restless and liked me to form. Working with others and be part of projects that enrich my real and virtual professional identity. However, I’m in oppositions year so my participation in social networks is less than usual, for study, but I always try to keep up. So I can, I learned to convey my teachers in training courses for teachers, both in the region of Murcia and Valencia, in Spain.
