Myra was born and raised in South Africa to Greek parents, educated in England and now lives in Athens. She achieved a joint honours BA in Art and Psychology at the University of Reading and enjoyed studying learning theories. Whilst at University, Myra helped design STEAM based workshops for children in the South of England. She went on to produce and provide educational programmes for museums in London. Myra moved to Athens in November 2018 and now works as an English teacher. When she came to Athens she became aware of the lack of creative and innovative learning, despite the effort and focus put on education, so decided to change that. Myra’s focus is for children to be learning producers, not consumers.
