Educator Veta Georgiadou talks about her dream of building a school different from the ordinary. At this school, learning is accomplished experientially, in harmony and interacting with the natural environment, aiming with every unit, to lead the children on a wonderful quest.
Η παιδαγωγός Βέτα Γεωργιάδου μιλάει για το όραμά της να φτιάξει ένα σχολείο διαφορετικό από τα άλλα. Σ’ αυτό το σχολείο η μάθηση είναι βιωματική, σε αρμονία και αλληλεπίδραση με το φυσικό περιβάλλον και στόχο έχει κάθε διδακτική ενότητα να αποτελεί και ένα υπέροχο ταξίδι αναζήτησης για τα παιδιά…
Veta Georgiadou was born and raised in Tetralofo, Kozani, surrounded by her village’s scents, friends’ voices and the care of the neighborhood. Having received such background, she moved on to study pedagogy, eventually becoming a wife and mother of three children. She had been working as a kindergarten teacher in public schools until nine years ago when she decided to fulfill her personal pedagogical dream. "The School of Nature", a school in the nature, which evolves man as an entirety. A constant self-searching voyage for students, parents, teachers and herself, who never stops learning and reforming.
