Stav Papadopoulos Interview
Learn about Stavroula's passion for being a teacher, writing books and plays, and conducting creative language workshops through her inspiring responses to Creativity Portal's 20 Questions interview.

My name is Stavroula Papadopoulos. I am Greek American and I studied Elementary Education and Spanish Literature in the U.S.A., where I lived with my family. Later, my travels brought me to Greece and I thought it was a break. Since then, I’ve been living in Greece and teaching English as a Foreign language teacher — that break has lasted for 25 years. Among my latest pursuits are writing and school plays, blogging and conducting creative language learning and teacher mentoring workshops. Learn more at my blog dareteach.wordpress.com.
