I’ve spent about 50 of my 54 years at school, so the school occupies an important place in my life. I’m an engineer, and I teach Maths and Physics, but my main interests aren’t on scientific subjects. I’m fond of art and literature; I live in the countryside, where I grow my orchard, with my kitten Gina.
If I became a teacher, it was an accident. When I was 25, after my graduation, I was used to work with my university professor. A day I received a call from my high school Math teacher: at that time he was head teacher in my old school, and offered me a job as a teacher. I accepted, and after a few days I understood it was my job.
I’ve been teaching for 30 years, by now, so I need some incentives to renew my enthusiasm. The world is changing quickly, and we teachers must keep us updated, in order to give our students a teaching suitable for the contemporary world. These are the reasons I’m in this project.
I am a 50 years old man from Campania who has been living in Sardinia for 18 years now. I love “my” island, I love its emerald sea, golden beaches, quietness and wild Mediterranean vegetation. I have many interests: reading, taking pictures, theatre, cinema, walking and sightseeing. As a typical Italian, I love good food and red wine (but I am not certainly afraid of drinking good beer!).
I have been teaching English Literature for 20 years and I love my job. I think that teaching has always been in my dreams since I was a child. I love my students and their energy, enthusiasm and vitality. Teaching makes you feeling young forever. On the other side, I well know that my job has many its great responsibility …. but, for me, this just represents a further reason to love it.
I am taking part in this project because I think it provides me with the opportunity to get in touch, exchange ideas and points of views on teaching with my colleagues from three different European countries and there is a great need of exchanging good teaching practices in our ever changing world. I like also the idea to produce some useful intellectual outputs to be shared all over Europe in order to enrich and improve our job.
I'm a 46 years old single man, teacher. My subject are Italian litterature, latin and history and I love art in every form: literature, cinema, painting. I'm ironic, even sarcastic sometimes, and I love teaching.
I don't know exactly when I decided to become a teacher. Both my parents were teachers,but I've been the only one among my sibling who made this choice. During my school years as a student I had some inspiring, wise and charismatic teachers, but I held other ones in low regard. Then the reason for the passion for my job is inside me.
I'd like to improve my students' motivation and in order to be able to do it I have to rethink about my own motivation. I'd like to increase the time and the quality of team working in my school; sharing ambitious long term goals, doesn't mean to give up my own personal approach to to my job and to my students.It would be great be a little part of a process of being more open to European teacher community, to complexity and freedom that education can provide to the whole school comunity. That's the reason why I've decided to take part of this project.
Hello,I'm Marinella Venturino and I'm a French teacher. I like my job because it allows me to feel ever young! I live in a small island on the south west of Sardinia so I'm very lucky because I can to go to the sea every day, and in every season! I've got a son and a daughter, but a dog and a cat also! I love animals very much! I'm very optimist and I like joking with my students too!

My name is Lydie Martine Licheri. I am a teacher of French conversation. I was born and lived in France (Lourdes) until 19 years and now I live and work in Sardinia
My passion for teaching is primarily based on my training as an educator. I have a degree in Education and two Masters,(Family Education and Couseling Relational).The question is not why did I become a teacher, but Why did I remain a teacher?... and it's because I can contribute to enable student to grow, to learn about French civilization, to be able to read another way of living.
I really believe that we can innovate and give our student an European Dimension, a civic consciousness that goes beyond our borders and our limits. I hope to have the opportunity to learn from more experienced colleagues and contribute to the team with new ideas, enthusiasm and commitment.
