English Language Teacher
My love story with the English language has started since my first years of school and it still stays strong every single day, in the lessons I teach to my students. Although I have always been passionate about foreign languages, I decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Management at Florida International University, in Miami, USA, wishing to become more knowledgeable in this area of study. Recently, I also took a Master’s Degree in Educational Management at the University of Craiova.
Experiencing the American education system, I realised the importance of a dynamic and complex programme of study, the importance of mutual respect, teamwork, and a significant student-teacher relationship.
Ever since I started teaching, I have been passionate in my commitment to three things: maximising individual student performance, inspiring the students’ love and interest in the English language, and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students.
Due to my strong belief that all children deserve a qualitative education and teachers interested in change and development, I participated in various courses, seminars and conferences. Among these it’s worth mentioning the CIPELT course offered by the British Council, for which I have received an international certificate in Primary English Language Teaching, and the Cambridge YLE examinations training course. In 2016 I got a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching- CELTA. This important international qualification helped me discover innovative teaching and learning methods, which proved very effective with students of all ages.
The students’ enthusiasm, personal development and astonishing results, are just a few of the joys of being a teacher. For every English class, I wish to awaken the children’s creativity, while they are having fun with games or challenges. Under my guidance, I hope that the English language learning becomes a pleasurable experience that will not only be useful to them for the rest of their lives, but it will also create memories that they will cherish forever.
