Xabier Rey

What brought me to Gándara was the search for a fair and respectful education in which one can participate naturally; a school where no one is stigmatized for the diversity of their abilities or characteristics, where creativity is fostered over the memorization of data totally unconnected with the reality that children live.

From the first day I found myself with an affectionate, inclusive team with an immense vocation. It is a place of round tables and horizons, of melting pots and infinite details. I feel very lucky to be a part of this project.

I understand science as a cross-curricular method, a logical process applicable to a multitude of vital aspects, and I believe it is essential to teach others to embrace mistakes, errors, and the unexpected as sources of growth and inspiration. I do not pretend to show an infallible and dogmatic science, but an organic and often unpredictable science. If we conserve our capacity for wonder and imagination, while we acquire critical thinking and observation skills, we will learn science. ”
