School Reviews

Dear sir or madam I am a special education teacher and I'm writing you to declare my interest in working for your school. I have done some research regarding the school's history, mission and curriculum. I was impressed by the strong ethics of equality and community-oriented giving that seem to be prevalent at your school's ideology. As a special education teacher it is my strong belief that children should be given the opportunity to learn at their own pace, in an environment that enhances their abilities and supports them to reach their full potential. My experience, has taught me that individual growth can only be achieved in a cohesive and connected community that takes into consideration the strengths, needs and aspirations of every student. I believe your school's philosophy is humanitarian and conciliates science with spiritual growth, and for that I think I am really qualified to work with you. As an undergraduate student I have taken courses of pedagogy, sociology, psychology, language and sciences. I have work experience not only at special education schools but also at tutoring children with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders and autism. Should you need more information on me, please don't hesitate to contact me. My e-mail is: Sincerely yours, Theano Koutromanou
