Ms. Marta Vernet, Head of Activities and Community Service

Marta is one of our veterans on campus. She attended ASB from ECC to Grade 12, together with her sisters, Mirea and Ariadna, graduating in 1985. Her mother, Montserrat Yll, was a founding teacher of the school, teaching classical dance to elementary students. Ms. Montse also introduced summer camps to ASB, “Colonias,” where students visited Mas Bado to learn and play in nature. Marta’s two daughters, Maria (Class of 2013) and Laura (Class of 2016), also attended ASB, graduating with the International Baccalaureate Diploma. 

Still feeling closely connected to the school, Marta came on staff at ASB in 1989. She has enjoyed several roles before her current as Head of Activities and Community Service, including teaching assistant, after-school coordinator and activities, and athletics and alumni coordinator.

One of Marta's favorite subjects in high school was Literature with Ms. Hernando. She also enjoyed participating in Model United Nations (MUN) and ASB ski trips. 

Marta fondly remembers former teachers, Ms. Hazel, Ms. Baldi, and Mr. Smith, who is still teaching at ASB. Marta recalls receiving her first Apple computer from Mr. Smith in the '80s. Marta was still a student when Mr. Manzano in the business office started work at ASB. Now they are colleagues.  

Today Marta is an active Rotarian. She introduced Interact and Rotakids programs to ASB. "I love to see children empowered through service," she commented, "I hope to inspire them to continue to have a mindset of serving and creating value in their community."

I love my job," shared Marta. "I love working with students of all ages, connecting them to the Barcelona community or other communities worldwide through service projects.

For Marta, ASB is "family"; she feels safe here. “It’s like coming home.
