Maria (Galanis) Arfanakis

Instructional Coach in Chicago, Illinois

Read my blog

Hi! I'm Maria and I'm currently an instructional coach for grades 6-8 in a suburb north of Chicago. I received my M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction in Tech because I love the possibilities that technology brings to learning, connecting people, and the world. When I think of my ideal focus in education, I want it to FOSTER, ELEVATE, and INSPIRE the CURIOSITY and WONDER we all have in us. At the same time remember to ENJOY it all. I tend to focus on the positive and believe that everyone has the ability in them to be great in their own way.

I'm married to one of the nicest guys out there, Konstantinos Arfanakis, and we have two little ones, Gia and Leo.
