Greetings Parents and Families of Sunland International Calahonda Sith Form College:
My name is Carmen Illanes Alberca and I am happy and excited to join the staff of SIC as the new Principal.
I am very passionate about educations and I look forward to leading your children, our students, same as Novaschool CEO’s new project to a certain success.
Before joining SIC I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 25 years. Some of the roles I have held include Head Teacher for the German University of Cologne (Germany) on behalf of Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft, Teacher for the German Chamber of Commerce ( DHK), Head Teacher and Responsible for Part of Recruitment at Hotel Management School Les Roches Marbella ( a prestigious swiss-american university), further to a long list in international educational prestigious centres.
My academic background includes a Bachelor in Latin and Greek Languages at the University of Seville, a Bachelor in German Language at the University of Cologne, and Advanced Certificate in English Language, and numerous Certificates of Advance Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership.
I believe that great schools are the results of great teachers, so I will be working closely with all our teachers to guarantee that all of our scholars are intellectually challenged and academically prepared to approach their exams and the access to university successfully.
Please get involved and support our team to achieve our goal. Parents, teachers and support staff all have an important role to encourage our children to become active learners.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this role. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share contacting us to :
