Ellie Alexiou Sporrer (EvoKids’ Founder)

Mrs. Alexiou Sporrer was born in Athens, Greece and she studied Mathematics. Even though she always intended to follow a career in education, post-graduation, she chose to follow an MBA course from which she graduated in 2008 with a distinction. It may seem an oxymoron, yet management skills turned out to be especially useful to a teacher!

Her interest in Education led her to London where, in September 2008, she qualified as a Teacher from the General Teaching Council for England and Wales (QTS No: 1030338). She taught at the Primary classes of "High Barnet Hellenic School" in London for one year whilst training as a secondary teacher at the "Park View Academy" in Tottenham, London and teaching privately the two great grandchildren of the distinguished family of Constantin Carathéodory.

In September 2009 she moved back to Athens for a year, and she taught kids 18 months to 6 years old at "My PlayCe" private school. In 2010, she moved to Zurich, Switzerland and started working at "Zurich International School", where she taught for two years.

In August 2012, she did the next stop in her career and she started leading Kinder Connection International School in Baden, Switzerland while her vision for creating her own school became a reality!

Mrs. Ellie is a PhD student in the field of Evolutionary Developmental Psychology. A field that inspired her to build her own school focusing on each child's emotional and academic development.

Mrs. Ellie is First Aid qualified for Babies, Children & adults.
