"All children have within them the potential to be great kids. Its our job to create a great world where this potential can flourish" - Stanley Greenspan
Having worked at Baleares International College, Sant Agustí for nearly 8 years, Ms Jacqui has loved watching so many children grow and mature from small children, through to successfully finishing their last year in the school, and she has enjoyed being part of their learning journey. Being a Teaching Assistant means Ms Jacqui’s primary focus is to support the childrens’ learning and wellbeing, as well as supporting the class teacher. Ms Jacqui admits that being a parent herself has very much helped in her role, ensuring the children receive the happiest start to their education. She is an advocate of positive mental health, as she believes a happy child is a healthy child.
Family is very important to Ms Jacqui, which is why she feels so at home at BIC, she feels like it is one big family. Ms Jacqui loves the children’s enthusiasm for learning, as well as learning from them herself. You will quite often hear Ms Jacqui say…`Every day’s a school day’...and she feels this is important for adults as well!
Prior to working at BIC, Ms Jacqui worked at Thomas Cook for 16 years. This was a very exciting chapter in her life as she got the opportunity to travel worldwide, combining her love for skiing with her work. She feels working for a tour operator certainly gives you the best skillset for life!
This is what originally brought Ms Jacqui to Mallorca, and she fell in love with the beautiful island. Twenty-five years later and she’s still discovering unbeaten tracks and the hidden gems the island has to offer. One of Ms Jacqui’s favourite places on the island is Deia, which is where she got married. Ms Jacqui is passing on her love for adventure to her two sons and during the weekends and school holidays she loves nothing more than to pack up the family campervan and drive off into the sunset!
