Miguel Alcantud, Integrated Science and Chemistry Teacher

I have 16 years of experience teaching Integrated Science in Middle and High School, plus IB Biology, Chemistry and ESS, as well as some Maths, English for adults and Spanish as a second language. I worked for several schools in Spain with most of my teaching experience at the American School of Valencia, where I enjoyed engaging in the IBDP.

I developed a passion for education as soon as I understood that life itself was an everlasting learning process and I was also inspired by some of my own teachers.

Coming from the Mediterranean side of Spain, I arrived in London with my American-Spanish multicultural family. I consider myself a citizen of the world with deep mediterranean roots, an I enjoy bringing this international perspective into my classes. I loves sharing the learning process with students, as I believe that the role of a teacher is to guide and accompany them throughout that process.

I speaks Spanish, English, Catalan and some Italian. I love music (rock, Brit-pop, mediterranean folk), poetry, cooking, cycling and hiking.
