Hi my name is Nadia Yokarini-Kotsonis and I was born and raised in Greece. I was born in Drama but moved to Athens when I was 10 years old. I lived and studied there until I graduated College. A few years after I graduated college I moved to the United States in 2005. I graduated from National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece with concentration in: Social Theology, Philosophy and Psychology. I’m proficient in English with a certificate from the University of Michigan. I was teaching in a private institution for 4 years in Greece the modern Greek language for adults and children.
I started teaching in the Greek Language School of Columbus in 2012 modern Greek covering the necessary basics for comprehending the verbal, oral, and written Greek language using the curriculum of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of USA. After 4 years of teaching I transitioned to the Academic Principal position for our Greek Language School.
My mission is for the children and adults that join our school to learn the language, our culture and heritage in a fun way so they can pass it on in generations ahead.
