Sandra has been with SIS since 2008 working in various roles: ICT/Computer Technology teacher, Subject Leader Design department and currently as Head of Technology.
With a vast experience in Digital Education and fascinated by change management that accelerates digital transformation, Sandra likes to see herself as a facilitator of change and improvement and in 2012 she embraced the challenge of implementing a complete reform of the SIS IT infrastructure as well as a full digitalisation of all services, including the launch of a 1-1 laptop program.
Originally from sunny Portugal, while completing her degree in Sociocultural Animation & Community Education and Development with a specialisation in Adult Education, Sandra had the privilege of working with a team of developers and educators from the Department of Educational Technologies at the Superior School of Education, who were pioneers of e-learning and b-learning methodologies. This inspiring journey shaped and changed the way she perceives technology in an educational environment. Sandra is a strong advocate that technology not only better reflects students’ lives outside the classroom, but also allows them to refine their digital skills in a way that will continue to be valuable throughout their adult life.
1 part Educator, 2 parts coffee addicted, 3 parts geek, when not at SIS in front of the screen, Sandra likes to travel, read biographies and stroll around Azeroth in World of Warcraft.
