Learn more about our Program Director:
Hometown: Szczyrk, Poland
Areas of expertise: As a Program Director I am in charge of program development, curriculum design as well as monitoring student achievement through sound assessment practices. I am passionate about maintaining high quality standards for our ESL Program and streamlining the operations of our ESL Institute. I apply my knowledge of cross-cultural communication as well as my international background to facilitate the admission process for new incoming ESL students.
Favorite place on campus: By far it's the Challenger STEM Learning Center. The Center's Programs include
simulated space missions that introduce students to real-world applications of STEM
principles. They have a replica of a space shuttle and an amazing control center.
Our ESL students have a lot of fun there every year during their Voyage to Mars simulation.
Favorite thing about UTC: The support and commitment of the UTC community when it comes to expanding international partnerships and embracing diversity.
Interesting facts: My native language is Polish, which explains all those consonants and hardly any vowels in the name of my hometown. I've always loved travelling and learning languages. I started learning English at the age of six. I took up French when I was twelve. I speak Polish when I visit my family, French when I'm at home and English at work. I also picked up some Italian when I was living in Turin and working for FIAT. I may know a thing or two about trucks and Italian sports cars. I've lived in Poland, Italy, France and now the USA.
