Deputy Director for Informal Education, Teacher of Economics and Business
Deputy Director for Informal Education, Teacher of Economics and Business, started her pedagogical career in 2011.

In 2006 she acquired Master’s degree in education science at Vytautas Magnus University, since then she has mainly been engaged in formal and informal schoolchildren education, particularly in business areas, as well as in international and local project activities.
Business concept has changed and currently we perceive it not only as an activity focused on commercial benefits but also as a personal growth of an individual, his capability to work in a team, being able to find appropriate arguments and express a flexible reaction towards changing circumstances and situations. School is an environment where children discover themselves, strengthen their abilities and gifts. It is a starting point where an independent life of a young person begins. Consequently, we, teachers, must encourage children to find and recognize themselves, their uniqueness and strengths at the same time educating their competences.
Kristina’s motto – each child is both unique and gifted.
