PROFILE

 Teacher/Writer/Mother of three/Visual Educational Consultant 

Dedicated and energetic English Teacher and Educational Consultant, 12 years’ extensive experience in kindergarten, gymnasium and high school classes. I taught English and Universal Literature to mixed classes, children aged between 3 –18.

I have the ability to use literature, stories, humor and imagination in classroom settings so as to encourage constructive teaching and its philosophy of learning among students. A Scorpio artist by nature, but able to get along with both work colleagues, pupils and senior managers, currently looking to continue my career as a classroom teacher and complete it with that of facilitating educational consultancy also. Being a mother of three made me realize what a great connection must be between parents, school and children. So, I decided to take them photos in the process of skills achievement and visualize more of this connection. I can assure you that my photography envisions emotions, emotions felt when playing, learning, teaching and parenting. Watching my work makes you (*for sure made me) more aware of who we really are, what do we really have to learn/teach and why the educational process is such a complex relationship.
