Dr Maria Osowiecki (UK)

Dr Maria be­gan her teacher train­ing on the same day that she sub­mit­ted her PHD at the Univer­sity of Cam­bridge.

Seven years teach­ing in Suf­folk schools fol­lowed be­fore an in­ter­na­tional post­ing to Ger­many at a Serve Chil­dren’s Ed­u­ca­tion School, teach­ing chil­dren in the Bri­tish gar­ri­son com­mu­nity near the Ber­genBelsen site.

Her cur­rent role as Vice Prin­ci­pal for Staff at Alice Smith School in­volves car­ing for the learn­ing needs of the teach­ing and school com­mu­nity.

Af­ter 15 years of teach­ing, she keeps each thank-you note from her stu­dents and won’t hide her tears when her exam classes reach their grad­u­a­tion.
