I was born in 1977 into a family of teachers in Romania. After graduating from high school in Salzburg, I started a university degree in technical studies in Linz. Unraveling the mysteries and riddles of this world I found very exciting, so I decided to do physics. I found it particularly fulfilling to share insights with my friends and fellow students, and I experienced that by engaging with other people’s perspectives and views, not only can there be a better understanding of the topic being discussed, but also of the person in front of me.
I took these insights with me when I started private tutoring in math and physics. Especially the one-to-one lessons filled me with great joy, as I could fully relate to another person and understand how he or she understands a certain topic (and thus a part of the world). Each lesson and learning path became as unique as the people involved, and together we were able to make great progress in a short period of time.
When I was given the opportunity to teach mathematics in the senior level of a Waldorf school, I joyfully accepted the challenge. I realized that through the setup of a traditional school (fixed classes, fixed subjects, fixed schedules, etc.) the individual learning path is very difficult to realize, and at the same time I saw how important it would be for many young people. Since then, I have been involved with the idea and realization of a place of learning where young people can follow their own learning path in a community at their own pace.
