Goretti grew up in North of Spain speaking Basque and Spanish. She moved to the UK in 2007 where she lived until early 2016. There, she worked as an Au Pair teaching Spanish while studying Retail Branding and Merchandising at London College of Fashion. Goretti has always had a strong interest in children and teaching. Before leaving London and moving to Bend, Goretti recruited and matched experienced nannies and teachers with children and their families. She learned about the Montessori philosophy while working in recruitment and was fascinated by it.
Once she relocated to Bend, Goretti volunteered at a Montessori School which confirmed her love for education. In June 2018 she received her AMI Primary diploma from Montessori Northwest in Portland.
Her first year at Desert Sky was incredibly fun and rewarding and Goretti is very excited to return for her second year as Assistant Teacher in the Pika classroom. She is looking forward to contributing to the positive, creative and compassionate Montessori classroom and helping children develop their own independence while becoming active members of their community.
When she is not working, Goretti enjoys trying out new sports, exploring Central Oregon lakes, dancing, hiking, traveling as much as possible and sharing adventures with her husband and dog.
