I come from a small village from northern Romania, Herina. Herina is known for salt and the oldest evangelical church.
Tell us about your background
I grew up in Herina, but I studied in Bistrita, the nearest city. I studied Fine arts in high school and Pedagogy at University. After that I got married and moved to Norway with my husband. I was very lucky to find a god job, bilingual teacher, in just one year. So now I work as romanian-norwegian teacher in Sandnes kommune, both at schools and in kindergartens, and at Sandnes International School.
I have a two years and seven months old daughter. I love cats and I like to make handmade things.
What inspired you to be a teacher?
To be a teacher was my childhoods dream. When we played ‘’school’’ game, I was always the teacher. I wanted to study Pedagogy in high school, but there was no Pedagogy class in that period, so I had to follow my second option, Fine arts, which actually helped me to develop my creativity and to see the world with new eyes. Lucky me, I could study at University.
What is the best part about your job?
The best part is that I can follow my dream. As a teacher I have a chance to build in students lives and see theirs progress. I have the privilege to do this every day, to see students learning and “get it”.
I never get bored and I learn something new almost every day.
What do you hope to achieve by being a teacher?
I hope to achieve my students dreams and goals. I want them to be successful at school and in theirs lives. If they have success, I have succeed!
