Juan would start his academic life studying a Master’s Degree in Psychology where he would collaborate at the Personality, Evaluation and Psychological Treatments Department in different research on gender, acculturative processes and migration. He would do an internship working directly with people in high risk of social exclusion and chronically ill and terminal patients.

He started his professional career as an educator in several courses to promote employment where he discovered his vocation for teaching and education. That is why he decided then to fulfill a postgraduate course in Special Needs and Student Support which allowed him to work for 8 years as a School Psychologist in the Valencian Public Psychological and Educational School Services working with all kind of schools and grade levels, being able to develop numerous personal and professional skills in the field of Special Education.

In 2010 he decided to take the plunge and he was chosen as Visitor Teacher in the USA within the program lead by the Spanish Ministry of Education. In the USA he occupied the positions of Educational Diagnostician and Bilingual Special Education Teacher developing his duties in DLI (Double Language Immersion English-Spanish) Schools. During this stage, he had the opportunity to work in multicultural environments and learn about bilingual education programs in that country.

At the present time, he is back in Spain where he would like to contribute with all his knowledge and professional expertise supporting bilingual students.
