The football training was always my greatest passion. Since young age, I began to study different training methods of the best coaches in the world, trying to learn the strongest views of their philosophies but at the same time keeping my principles and game ideas. Since the beginning of my university education I started working as a football coach in all different training and competitive levels.
Besides, the taste of teaching started to grow, when I began to coach football to a group of young athletes with the main goal of teaching the game. Teaching physical activity to primary students reinforced that passion and it was the final impulse fro start the teaching career. Adequate the different teaching techniques in the several sports, to a diverse group of students, proved to be one of the biggest challenges of teaching and when carried out in a satisfactory manner provides an enormous sense of accomplishment by knowing that the teacher could lead to the formation of young people.
