Eva Sebastián

Eva Sebastián is an enthusiastic Spanish and English Teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching both locally and internationally including England, Japan and Singapore. She relocated to Spain with her three sons in July 2022 and is currently based in Palma de Mallorca where she teaches Spanish and English. Eva's further qualifications include a Bachelor and Master's degree from the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain, as well as a teacher certification and a Postgraduate degree from the same university.

Eva´s international teaching career started in England where she worked as a teacher assistant at Arnold School, an independent school in Blackpool, Lancashire. Later on during her time in Japan, she served as Head of World Languages and IB (International Baccalaureate) Spanish Teacher in Grades 6-12 at Canadian Academy, a leading international school in Kobe, Japan. Eva was also a Middle School IB Spanish Teacher at Stamford American International School in Singapore, specialising in delivering the Language Acquisition and Language and Literature programmes in Grades 6-8.


Eva is thrilled to be joining a school with values and a vision that she personally shares. Eva believes RWIS´s educational philosophy shares many of the values that she holds dear, such as lifelong learning, curiosity, honesty and critical thinking, and it is the perfect complement to her love of teaching.


Another reason why Eva is very enthusiastic about joining the team is the fact that RWIS values individual approach towards children's learning needs as well as positive encouragement and classroom safety. Throughout her teaching career, Eva has always cared for a good classroom atmosphere and has used positive reinforcement techniques to help children obtain their learning goals. Eva will be happy to use her knowledge and expertise in creating engaging learning experiences to help RWIS’s pupils grow and develop at their own pace.


While in Singapore, Eva was awarded the Ingenuity Middle School Award for teaching students about Mexico’s Day of the Dead through an exhibition held at the Singapore National Museum. In Japan, she launched a Cultural Exchange

Programme with another IB school in Tarragona, Spain. Eva believes that taking classroom learning outside can help young people become more engaged in their education and she is willing to make RWIS children’s out-of-classroom learning a profitable experience.


Overall, Eva is a firm believer that language learning can help create a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. “Understanding what different groups of people say and why is the first step in determining how we can help bring people together”, she says. Eva would like nothing more than to encourage RWIS students’ curiosity and passion for languages.

Eva looks forward to the prospect of your family joining the RWIS community and for your children to experience an exceptional, world class education
