Favorite quotations
"Just remember that you are not here for the brilliant and wonderful students of yours, you are here for those that are not so good, the ones with the mediocre grades, for the boring minds, those students that can not always give the best answer in a test. The others, the brilliant ones, though it is fun to teach them, they do not really need you. The other ones need you. University, in which it worth's to teach (and society in which it worth's to live) is the one that has been designed not for the privileged minority, the smart brains, those that destiny picked to succeed-though every university and society has to have enough space for these minorities too-but for those that their names will be remembered through history only by their birth and death certificate" - Eric Hobsbawm

Dear friends,

I've always been devoted to education and art.
It's as if I was born to be in the educational field and embellish it with art.

I saw/see no other way for me in life.

"Breathing" yet in Greece, suffering from the economical crysis for the past few years (and those to come), I found myself not being able to give as much as I would like to my students.

To my children.

We were never a rich country, we never had the best possible public schools (buildings, supplies etc), we never received (the teachers) a decent salary for as long as I remember.

But I could offer educational quality at the very least. Now, I can not. 

My school does not have any paints, papers, scissors, glues, markers, toys and so much more. Computers/tablets and similar supplies are not an option for us. They never were.
I have parents in my school that do not have enough money to offer proper meals to their children. I have kids coming from disadvantaged whereabouts and it makes me mad and sad at the same time, that I can not always help them.
We happened not to have heat for a month in our school. We couldn't afford to buy heating oil. That was an awful period and I wish we never have to deal with it again.

Thus, I need your help.

I can not always buy the supplies for all my students and prepare, every day, meals for those in need.

It hurts not to be able to do/be the BEST for kids.

Please, consider donating for my school by clicking bellow (via Paypal).
You will be included in our donator's book ...and a surprise will be send to you by the end of the school year. Just send us your email (if you wish to be informed through the Internet) or your personal address (if you would like to receive a mail through the Post Office).

Thank you for donating to my school. All funds will be used for art supplies, books, toys and food for my students. Have a beautiful day <3
