In my opinion, each day represents a unique opportunity to learn, and my main goal as a teacher is to prepare my students to be successful in the rest of their school years and to become life-long learners.
My hobbies are reading and travelling. I enjoy reading psychology books and various articles. I also love to travel and discover new things every day.
I believe that by becoming a teacher and giving love and support to children, you are leaving a lasting legacy in the World. Being a teacher is providing students with the tools they need to live happy and productive lives.

My name is Cristina Nagy, and I am the music teacher at KEY International School. I’m described as being friendly, communicative and very creative.
I discovered my musical skills during my childhood and my love for singing led me to learn how to play the guitar. I recorded four Christian songs albums and founded the folk-pop band called “UNDE” (WAVES) and the children’s choir called “ALLEGRIA”. With ALLEGRIA, I recorded two albums, gave a Royal Concert in Săvârşin for the Royal Family members and their guests and sang carols for Pope Francis. I’m also a composer and a singer, performing in various concerts.
I love working with children as much as I love music and have been doing so since I was sixteen and a volunteer in several organizations.
My biggest passion is to do wonders with musical children but also with all of those who love music!
My name is Sara Garcia Blanco, and I come from sunny Spain!
I'm a Psychology and Criminology graduate, specialised in clinical psychology. I was an English teacher for children aged 3-12 for five years, and I worked for the "Training and Development" department at the European Institutions in Luxembourg and Brussels for two years. My diplomas include teaching English and French as a foreign language.
In my free time, I love to do sports, draw landscapes and cartoons, and play with my beautiful cat. I believe teaching comes with a great responsibility to prepare children with the tools they will need emotionally, physically and cognitively.
Each student is unique, and it is our job to provide them with a space where they feel seen, heard, understood, celebrated and accepted for who they are. To offer them choices that will get them to invest their time, out of curiosity, passion and a real desire to learn. I can't think of anything more important, exciting and meaningful!

At KEY International School, I am the leader of the Busy Bees group, where we focus on growing through love, laughter and valuable experiences. Besides being a Busy Bee, I love to take long walks, talk about the meaning of life, take city-breaks, discover our beautiful world and surround myself with people who make me laugh. I believe starting each day with a smile is the key for a better life.
My love for teaching was always present within me, and it is my utmost goal to be the best the children can have as their teacher.

Every child is special. Every child is like a vessel, waiting to be filled, and what ends up in that vessel is completely dependent on us: teachers. Being a teacher means forging people and it implies passion, proactivity and dedication. Being a teacher means knowing how to light up the joy of knowledge, creativity and curiosity as well as the joy of coming to school in the soul of every child. Being a teacher is an art!
