1.- ¿Qué significa educación para ti?


I think that education is something that goes from parents to children like knowledge, values, customs, etc…


2.- Describe tu educación formal (desde la primaria hasta el momento del estudio) ¿qué recuerdas más y por qué?


what I will never forget: my first kiss was when going out from school. A guy I liked grabbed my hand and I said to walk quicker than the others, like 2 blocks, we stopped to wait for our friends in a corner and he approached me. Looked into my eyes and I felt sorry […] and then he hugged me and I kissed me. Ahhh. He was so cute, so unique, romantic. I feel butterflies in my stomach whenever I remember that moment.


3.- Describe tu educación no formal. (aprender fuera de la escuela)


¿Has hecho cursos fuera del colegio alguna vez? ¿por qué?


Yes, I have. I have been to Sevillanas [folklore] dance when I was young. Because it is a beautiful dance that makes you very feminine and if you wanted to get a husband, you needed going to the Feria [folk party place] to hang out and dance. Now, since I am retired, I go to courses every year here at the Social Centre. They keep me busy.


¿Cómo es tu nivel educativo ahora?


I have been a teacher in the secondary school for many years so I consider myself to be very smart. But I know I need to keep going. Especially now with the ICT thing.


¿Has tenido alguna experiencia que te haya enseñado algo importante? En caso afirmativo, cuáles.


Probably the best experience I had was working with the kids in the High school. They were so immature but so intelligent at the same time. I think they taught me as I also did to them.


¿Qué o quién fue tu mejor profesor/a y por qué?


I remember a nun when I was at the secondary school. She was always saying that if we wanted to be someone in life we had to follow our dreams. But “under the consent of our husband!!”, I reckon now. You could not do the things people do nowadays when Franco [the dictator] was alive.
