Rosa Obradors, teacher

In the 1920’s Rosa Obradors created her own academy where girls could study subjects like commercial arithmetic and accounting.

But she is mainly known for her manual of Catalan ortography, a summary of the ‘Normes ortogràfics’ (Institute for Catalan Studies).

She was born on 3 May 1900.

Soprano Montserrat Caballé about her teacher Conxita Badia

She was unique, unique, all the monuments they could create for her would be too few and if I should be good enough as to leave a mark, the one that I had to leave would be hers.

Montserrat Caballé (1933-2018) was one of Conxita Badia‘s pupils.
