After more than 12 years of teaching English to kindergarten and school children in Bucharest, Silvana strongly believes that Jolly Phonics is a wonderful opportunity to lead children into a new experience that fosters the ability and pleasure to read. Silvana is eager as a Professional Trainer to show her peers how their pedagogigal ego could be rewarded thanks to the Jolly Phonics method. They can get fast results that can make a difference, with totally dedicated students, in a funny and always new way, with all the freedom of the programme for adjusting methods and improvising.
