What Do You Like Most In Your Life? :
I like that I am lucky to have around me people that truly love and support me. Also, being grateful for this everything good comes to my way naturally.
Why Did You Choose EVS? :
It was a good opportunity to live and meet people from different places. I would be able to find out different habbits and ways of living. Moreover, being part of a team and surviving in a foreigner country would have positive effect on myself, would make me stronger and more confident.
What Are Your Expectations? :
I hope to learn some polish, open my mind, earn every knowledge that is offered to me, keep friendships and promote the Greek civilization.
What do you hope to share with other people during your stay in Poland ?
My experiences which have been gained through working, leaving and traveling. I would like to share good moments, help them as I can in everyday life and in the workshops.
What would be your best attributes?
As I teacher I believe that I would be very useful in the classroom bringing different ways of learning and new methods. It is very new idea in Greek schools to combine chess and learning, because it is a game which demand clear thought and estimate the movement that the other player may do. So a student can sharpen his awareness and his mind.
Also, I like connecting learning with music, drawing or collage. I believe that we learn better when we use many objects that wake our senses.
