Ms. Patricia Fernandez is among the 19 new teachers in the high school this year. She is a Spanish teacher who sees her profession as a learning experience, and DAA is very lucky to have such a person on board. The Pawprint interviewed Ms. Fernandez to get to know more about her.
Where are you coming from and where are you from originally?
I am originally from Spain but I have been working in Rabat, Morocco for the two last years before joining DAA.
What got you to become a teacher?
I love working and interacting with people, especially young students. I learn so much from them. It also gives me the opportunity to live in different countries.
How do you like Dubai and DAA?
Both Dubai and DAA represent a new adventure for me.
What’s different between DAA and your old school? What’s different between Dubai and your old city?
DAA is an international school with students from all over the world while in my last school students were mainly locals. Dubai is very modern and developed place while Rabat is a developing city where life can be sometimes a bit chaotic and challenging. However, Morocco is a beautiful country with exotic and amazing spots to discover.
What are you passionate about? What do you love doing in your free time?
I love travelling and learning new things. I like spending my time with friends and family.
What’s your favourite travel destination?
Definitely the Caribbean! It’s a piece of heaven on Earth!
What’s your craziest experience as a teacher?
Every day can be crazy in this profession!
The DAA community and the Spanish department are extremely excited to have a teacher like Ms. Fernandez as a new member to the family.
