Zane Linde
English Language and Literature Teacher

I will be teaching IBDP English A Language and Literature, IGCSE Literature in English (Grade 10). This will be my 4th academic year at EIS.

Qualifications:

  • University of Latvia, BA in English Philology;
  • University of Latvia/Dalarna University (Sweden), MA in English Philology (Literature);
  • University of Latvia, Teaching Certificate;
  • University of Nottingham, Postgraduate Certificate in International Education (currently enrolled).
  • Before EIS I was working at:

  • Experiential learning educator at a UWCx initiative;
  • Translator (specialization: Literature and History).
  • I am proud of how much my students have achieved over the past three years both academically and personally.

    After work I like to read (a lot), write poetry, play with my puppy, and go for long walks (when it is not freezing, which is hardly ever).

    To get up in the morning and go to school I tell myself... It is too early even for inner speech ))

    When I was a child I wanted to become... First a farmer, then an opera singer.

    I am learning from kids more patient.

    The school of the future is based on experiential learning and teaching students empathy, kindness and social responsibility.
