Athanasia Gaitanidou was born in Korinos Pierias, Greece. She has graduated from the Zarifeios Primary Level Education Academy of Alexandroupolis and has completed her master’s thesis on “Management and Administration in Education” (Roma Tre University). Today she lives in Kavala with her family and works as a principal in the 4th primary school. She does not forget the first years of her professional career, when she taught at the Roma encampments of Haideftou and Chrysoupolis, Kavala in Greece. Those “special” kids provided her with the incentive to continually search for ways that would lead to an education of equal opportunities to all children.
