English Language teacher
My career began in 2004 when I first worked in a school that followed the British Curriculum. I graduated from the Faculty of Foreign Languages and then I took a Master’s Degree in School Counselling. A few years later I felt the need to learn more and so this summer I have completed another Master’s Degree in Preschool and Primary Education.
My journey has later brought me to an international teaching environment (International School of Bucharest and American International School of Bucharest) where I became an Early Years Coordinator and classroom teacher. Working with the American curriculum was another beautiful experience for me. Looking back I realise how grateful I am that I have had the chance to work in multicultural environments. To me teaching in such an environment means making others my priority, understanding them and helping them to evolve and reveal themselves.
I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. An education should empower a child and help him or her to make a positive contribution to our world. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care”. This for me is an important reminder that teaching is all about building a relationship with my students.
Lastly, I also believe that when you take learning away from whiteboards and copybooks to dances, puzzles and interesting assignments, the students become much more actively involved.
