We’re Back!!

This year has been very busy and full of interesting activities and unfortunately the blog was not updated during the first term. Don´t worry though because we will be updating the blog periodically with photos from the first term and with the activities currently happening at school now! First and foremost it is important to introduce the Language Assistants for this year. There are some familiar faces and some new ones as well! I’ll let them introduce themselves:


Hello everyone! I am so excited to be back at La Senda! Most of you already know me, but I am Ellen. I was here for two years working with students. Last year I decided to do my masters in International Education at the University of Alcala. I am originally from Seattle, Washington in the USA. at university I did a double major in History and Spanish. In my free time I love to travel, eat, play/watch sports, and explore the world around me. I am so happy to be back at La Senda working with the amazing staff and the best students!


My name is Matthew and I am originally from the United States, from the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. When I was younger in university, I studied a combination of writing, film, theatre and other fine arts. For the last thirteen years I have lived abroad in many countries throughout the South American, European, Asian and African continents. Three years ago I moved to Spain and started to work at a primary school within the public school system of Madrid. I then went on to obtain my masters degree in international education at the University of Alcala de Henares. Last year I started working at IES La Senda, and have renewed my contract to continue teaching here for this academic year. I am excited to be back and wish everyone a fun and productive year!
