Maria is Impact Assessment & Knowledge Development Specialist in Teach For Bulgaria. She joined the organization because she is convinced that every child has to have unlimited opportunities for development. She believes that change is possible when people stop putting up with the fact that the future of thousands of children is being determined by the place they were born in, and the socio-economic environment they grew up in.
Before joining Teach For Bulgaria, Maria worked as an assistant of the director of Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, and administrative manager of several international projects. Maria graduated 9th French High School in Sofia, and received her BA in Cultural Studies in Sofia University “St Kliment Ohridski”.
