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.
