Vicky Loras

Whoop, whoop, whoop! I’ve finally managed to tear the Whooping, Yipping & Yaying Twitter Girl from her screens and her family, and to stay still for 15 minutes while I probed her brains and her heart. At the same time, without moving from our chairs, we travelled from Toronto to Ioannina, and onto Zug; we zipped in and out of seasons, we went up the mountains, and down to the lakes, but, still, we found some time to touch upon what’s near to our hearts: education.


My name is Vicky Loras and I am an English Teacher, born in Toronto, Canada. For ten years, my sisters (Eugenia and Christine) and I owned an English School in Greece, The Loras English Academy, but I have now moved with my eldest sister to Switzerland,  where I continue to work as an English teacher. This year I teach mainly Business English to adults and I love it!

I believe in teaching as an ongoing learning process, both for the benefit of the students and the teacher. For that reason I love attending workshops and conferences! I feel so motivated and inspired by them.
