I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.

"Dar calabazas" = To give pumpkins*

to give someone the axe / the brush off
Going beyond rejection and emotional failure, it also carries the meaning of failing tests and exams. "Le he pedido salir y me ha dado calabazas" (I was rejected) "He ido a ver las notas del exámen y me han dado calabazas" (I failed the test)
