Bio
I am a professional educator with international background in teaching and educational management. My university studies allowed me to gain in-depth theoretical comprehension of language and literacy development in bilingual children. Combined with teaching experience in Iceland and the UK, I have been able to apply this knowledge in practice.
Holding a number of administrative positions within supplementary language schools of Reykjavik and London allowed me to gain solid managerial skills and understanding of complex educational management systems in various countries. I am a strong advocate of bilingual education and mother tongue support eager to develop myself and further career in the educational sector.
