Chrysanthi Michlizoglou lives in Thessaloniki and is currently working in two schools in two towns in Chalkidiki. She holds a BA in English Language and Literature from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a MEd in TEFL/TESOL from the Hellenic Open University. She has extensive teaching experience in teaching English as a Foreign Language to both children and adults, as well as English for Specific Purposes to adults and English for Academic Purposes to Greek and international students. She has been involved in peer mentoring sharing knowledge, ideas and practices on different ways of teaching. She is very enthusiastic and hard-working, and committed to motivating students and meeting their needs. She is currently working on the development of lessons and educational material based on literature, and cultural issues. Her interests also involve literature reading, theatre viewing, jogging and singing. Becoming a SUSI Fulbright scholar, and so a member of a multinational group, gives her the opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences and to acquire new knowledge on various themes by living new experiences. Thus, she aspires to transform all these into ideas for curriculum planning, teaching, cultural projects and teacher training seminars.
