“As Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This is what makes it so important. It is the basis for taking responsibility and for making a difference.

One of the reasons I decided to teach was the fact that students are the future of tomorrow, so I wanted to teach them how to be more sensitive to our social and economic environment. During the years of working in different schools, I became more and more confident that this was exactly what I wanted to do.

I chose to work at GIS because I can identify with their values and their philosophy of education. Every day when I leave the school, I have a smile on my face because of all the little things that happen during the day. To me, it seems very important that every child gets a chance to learn in his/her own way in order to explore their potential on an entirety. After all, education is not only about knowledge; it’s about values, beliefs, skills and much more.”
