Joan is an experienced Spanish teacher, who joined the Amgen Teach Community during the third year of the programme.

When asked about Amgen Teach, Joan responds saying, "All the courses are very useful. I have already tested out two techniques that were covered in the training."

Joan also highlights the fact that the training made him feel more confident and ready to try new things in his classroom.  "I mixed medical research with nano-robots to target some diseases. I explained to my students that advances in technology do not automatically mean success in eradicating a disease, for example, Tuberculosis."
