My name is Niki and I am 32 years old. I have completed my studies in History and Archaeology at University of Ioannina and I obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Special Educational Needs at the University of Wales in the UK. I am currently finishing my studies for my second Postgraduate Diploma in ‘Pedagogical Psychology and Education’. Since 2013 I have been working as an Assistant Teacher for students with disabilities in various schools around Greece. My role has been the identification of specific learning needs, designing action plans for inclusion, teaching and supporting children with developmental or emotional difficulties. I really like to work and interact creatively with children and I am trying to incorporate learning through play. I believe that children’s emotions, ideas and beliefs should be heard and respected in order to understand them better and help them to develop their personalities. Other personal interests include travelling, cinema, photography, drawing and cycling.
