Martin S.

I embarked on my teaching journey at a young age, assuming the role of Head of Math at my own school. During that time, I taught students across Primary and High School levels, employing interactive games and problem-solving approaches. We participated in various National Olympiads, achieving remarkable results, and also prepared students for Cambridge AS and A levels exams. While I have taken on other responsibilities such as Head of Science and House Master at international schools, my heart has always remained in the classroom, surrounded by students. This unwavering dedication is the driving force behind my enthusiasm and overall well-being.

Throughout my career, I have actively engaged in school life through extracurricular activities, service initiatives, sports, and outdoor education. However, my greatest contribution to the schools I have served lies in promoting student well-being and mindfulness. I have integrated meditation as a tool for learning, allowing students to explore nature conceptually. This method originated during my volunteer work in maximum security prisons in Argentina and has since evolved to align with the IB HL curriculum for Physics. By incorporating depth and joy into the learning process, I strive to provide students with a high-quality education that goes beyond the mere acquisition of information.
