Anca Costea

2 Omega Form Tutor

My professional journey started 27 years ago when I decided to study Education, Child Psychology and Pedagogy at “Gh. Asachi” Vocational High School in Piatra Neamț. Upon graduation, provided that I had grown fond of foreign languages, particularly English and French, I moved on to study these at the University of Bucharest and later on at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. This is where I learned Swedish and I studied “Perspectives of Multiculturalism in Education”.

Throughout this journey I deepened my theoretical knowledge through professional training courses, learning how the implementation of international programs can complement the traditional teaching.

My experience working with children includes 19 years in different educational systems, international, bilingual, and based on the British curriculum. I have taught nursery and primary school children, the last two years being dedicated to teaching first and second-grade students at a bilingual school.

I believe education is a process where teachers are facilitators, mediators between children and the environment. The less guided the interaction, the more successful the learning experience. In my perspective, education is a successful partnership between children and teachers as they cooperate to discover the immediate surroundings, at the same time developing their different types of intelligence.

I am excited to have the opportunity to apply the knowledge I gained during my studies and my international experiences to guide children from grade 2 omega during the 2021-2022 school year. This is also a great opportunity to blend traditional and modern teaching strategies and develop alongside my students.
