The next Abacus Ark Award winner we would like to introduce is Consolacion Marin Martinez – also known as Miss Consol. Miss Consol joined us at our Wandsworth nursery in July 2017 and is a key teacher in our preschool classroom.
At the Abacus Ark Awards, Miss Consol’s colleagues voted for her to win two awards for both the creative and awareness categories and Miss Consol has been described as respectful, supportive, calm and attentive.
One of her colleague’s comments:
“Miss Consol is always full of brilliant ideas and creative activities; if something doesn’t work she quickly thinks of a way to overcome it and she is particularly creative and artistic with decorations in the nursery and displays, which always look lovely.”
Read Miss Consol’s profile below to get to know more about her!
Name: Consolacion Marin Matinez
Position: Key Teacher
Degree in Early Childhood Studies
I have 3 years’ experience with toddlers and 2 years with preschool.
What do you love most about working in childcare?
I like to work with children to support them to learn their shapes, letters, to write and ‘help the children to discover their words’. I like to observe how they learn and check their progress.
What is your earliest memory as a child?
My earliest memory is of my sister and me playing together and developing our imagination through role play games. She was older than me and she pretended to be the teacher and I was the pupil. I enjoyed drawing on the black board doing mark making and colouring. It is my earliest memory with my older sister.
Look out for our social media posts over the coming weeks to see what Miss Consol gets up to at the nursery this month!
