It had always been my childhood dream to teach children. When this dream became reality after I had finished my 5-year education at the Institute of Education in the Arts and the Education of the Kindergarten Teachers (Bakip 19 “Maria Regina”) and I began teaching as a kindergarten and daycare pedagogue, I began looking for a new challenge. In the following, I became the leader of the Arche Noah daycare center, which was an additional responsibility I accepted with great joy and continue to enjoy doing.

After having worked in this area for four years, I decided to continue my pedagogical education. I started studying at the University College of Teacher Education in Vienna and graduated as a primary school teacher three years later. During this time, I was able to work a few hours at the Arche Noah office and also at MCA which allowed me to take a look at the practical work of a primary school teacher.

After three turbulent years, I was finally able to start teaching my first class. During my second year of service in this area, I was invited to take charge of the pedagogical school leadership at MCA and I am learning a lot in this position. 

Even though I am still at the very beginning of my career as a teacher and as the pedagogical school leader, I can definitely say that I am looking forward to spending many more years in this profession, at this school, with these children and with my colleagues. 

I enjoy teaching at MCA very much and I consider it a privilege to be a part of such an open and free school. At MCA, children can study almost free of any pressure to perform and are allowed to just be themselves. Due to the close cooperation and professional work of the teaching staff, we are able to address the educational or psychological need of each child individually.

I want to do my best in my profession and I know that I am exactly in the right place.

However, there is one main reason why I started teaching at MCA: God is at the center of all the work that we do.
