I’ve been loving IT from an early age and I have started teaching IT and economics to teenagers and adults early in my college years. Working with children I thought to be a challenge, but it soon turned to be one of the best and most rewarding occupation. I’m in this project since the beginning of 2015, which was also the start of this project. I’m teaching the children of these centers what computers are, how they work, what can you do with them and most importantly how to use them. Starting from the basics to more advanced levels like HTML and CSS, I’m hoping to bring these children on the same level with children who have access to everything and why not go even further and make them competitive and ready to fight for a better place in society and to be an inspiration for others.
My name is Alexandra Dumitru and I work as a Math and English teacher. As a future engineer, since I have been hired, I have been asked so many times why would I like I to teach instead of coding. Since the fifth grade, I have met a varieties of teachers: some of them were tired, bored and had no interes in their students, others did their best for us, to become the best version we can. Than I understood that teaching is not for everyone. Why do I teach? Well,I teach because, for me, it’s the most effective and most enjoyable way to change the world. That’s the bottom line: We need to change this world, and this is the way I’m choosing to do it. Teaching allows me to work on hearts and minds, to guide people in becoming empowered, literate, engaged, creative, liberated human beings who want to join in this effort to change the world.
