Am I still friends with anybody from kindergarten?
I am still in touch with some of my kindergarten friends. Actually, one is still a good friend of mine, our lives became very different, for instance, he turned out to be into economics and investment banking which is quite far from my career but we are still good friends. I believe it is interesting to see how the things you are part of during your early years can last for decades. I guess that is one of the things I love about being a kindergarten teacher, knowing I am part of one of the most important periods in the development of a child, and being able to support and influence what kind of adults they will become.
Hello I am a Spanish national and trained social worker, however, I began my teaching career in an international kindergarten in Finland in 2012. In 2014 I left on a leave of absence to work abroad as a kindergarten and primary school teacher in Vietnam and returned to the international kindergarten in 2016.
I am about to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Metropolia University of Helsinki, which I started in 2018. I recently moved to Czeck Republic from Finland and started to work for Bambino (Dejvice) last summer.
