I feel truly privileged to have been born and raised in South Africa. This gave me the opportunity not only to receive a high standard of education, and be taught by the most amazing teachers, but also to grow up in a diverse, multicultural society. All these factors contributed to me becoming the person I am today.
It became my vision and passion to make a difference and to create a school where I could give each and every student the education I was lucky to receive.
I created my school in the year 2000 and it has been amazing to see students change their attitudes towards learning, and see students loving every minute of using English in their everyday lives.
This inspired me to create Myrsini’s Edutainment which is a programme in which we teach children aged 3-12 English through creative activities. The outcome of the programme has been amazing and has become popular not only among the locals on the island but among people from all over Greece and abroad who have attended our school.
I also came up with another original idea…. Myrsini’s village which is an educational tool where students are given the opportunity to learn grammar and vocabulary in real life situations.
The demand on the island soon led to us opening up two more schools, one in Alyki in 2007 and one on the island of Antiparos in 2015.
My mission is to continue creating fun, exciting and effective ways to learn a language and inspire both teachers and students, and for me to become a better teacher than the one I was yesterday.
