Introducing a new SHE network member:
Regional coordinator in Cantabria, Spain
What is your experience in the field of Health Promoting Schools?
As a physical education teacher for 23 years, I have been the SHE school coordinator for ten years. I have also coordinated research projects about health in schools. I am in charge of the teacher training programmes in school health and responsible for the design of the health promoting school program in Cantabria, abbreviated: RCEPS-SHE. Since 2014 I am the regional coordinator for SHE.
What is your role as the SHE regional coordinator in Cantabria, Spain?
My role is:
- to supervise the Cantabria health promoting school network to design materials for teachers and schools
- to be in contact and sign agreements with administrators and officials working in school health
- to build rapport and promote experiences exchange between school partners
- to coordinate health projects in the field of education and teacher training programmes and to direct the Cantabrian SHE forum.
What would you like to contribute to the SHE Network?
I would like to further network with all SHE partners, which will provide us with the opportunity of sharing experiences, materials and teachers of our schools with all the European partners. I would also like to promote joint research projects, teacher training events and the exchange of experiences among members. Finally, I hope to get all the support for the SHE network from our regional government.
