Mila AlexandrovMila Alexandrov

Academic Director and Founder

 

As a dynamic and energetic teaching professional with a genuine interest in students’ cognitive and social growth, I am actively involved in diverse areas of education including curriculum and pastoral development, monitoring of student progression and a keen contributor towards extracurricular activities.

My Bachelor´s degree in education and Master’s degree in teaching Biology and Chemistry has supported my 20 years experience of teaching Biology and General Science at the Secondary level. For the last 17 years, I have also been teaching both the IBDP and MYP at International Schools in Malta, the Bahamas, the Netherlands, and Austria.

By having a broad experience in working with both students and teachers internationally and encouraging them to reach their full potential, I have still been able to work as a Head of a Science Department, Personal Project and Extended Essay supervisor, creating and updating assessment tools for all levels according to school goals. My Certificate in International Leadership which includes: Curriculum Leadership in the International School, The Effective Principal from theory to practice, Creating and Administrating an Effective School, Instructional Supervision and Evaluation, Leadership and Group Dynamics, has only fuelled my desire to keep students enthusiastic and interested in learning. Furthermore, I am also an IB examiner, have worked at Stanford University IBDP Preparation Courses and have a broad experience working with ESL and students with special needs.
