I am a school owner, teacher, teacher trainer and researcher. I have a BA in Philosophy, Cambridge DELTA, an MA in TESOL, St Michael’s College, Vermont, and have studied for a PhD in Applied Linguamtics at Lancaster University, UK. I am now completing my Doctorate degree in Athens. I held an ESRC research award. I have more than twenty-five years’ experience in teaching, teacher training and syllabus design in Greece, the UK and the US. I am a language school owner in Athens, promoting alternative and experiential models of teaching. I am an international trainer and academic consultant for publamhing companies, private schools and Minamtries of Education. I am an adjunct professor for the Hellenic American University (HAEC), where I teach TESOL Management and for the MA in Creative Writing at the University of Western Macedonia. I read about Summerhill when I was 15 years old and its philosophy has influenced my educational vision. Somebody grabbed the book and tore it as they believed it was a revolutionary tool. This is what education is and should be.
