Dear Parents, Sawadeeka! My name is Cristina Landazabal and I am the EAL support teacher for Yr1.

I come from Spain, my husband comes from England and my children were both born in Thailand so we are a very International family! My children Carla (Yr5) and Max (Yr3) are bilingual, as I am, in Spanish and English. I believe strongly in the importance of maintaining the home languages so I speak to them in Spanish. I have taught 3-7yr old children in England, Spain and Thailand. For most of my teaching career I have been a homeroom teacher, this is my second year in the role of an English language support teacher and I am enjoying it very much. To contact me please email me at: or if I’m free then come and see me in the EAL/LS room in the Yr1 area. I have been at NIST for many years now so I can tell you it is a great place to be! I hope you enjoy it too. Regards, Cristina
