My name is Maria and I come from Thessaloniki. I am graduate of the Pedagogical Department of Pre-School Education at the University of Thessaly and I have obtained certification in special education from the University of Aegean. This year I am at the level of postgraduate studies in the Special Education department of the University of Nicosia. I work as a kindergarten and nursery school teacher for the last eight years. At the same time in the afternoon I work as a nanny and help children in their first school steps with private lessons. I like the routine, the organization and the order of things. Through my experience I realized that my job is not just a professional but a human function. I love the children’s smiles and all parts of education. I enjoy painting, construction, crafts, cooking, reading fairy tales and other created activities. I have worked with all ages of children (from infant to school age). Every age has its own needs and each child is unique. I am non-smoker and like traveling.
