My name is Despina Kaikisiz-Toufexis and I will be teaching Greek at Plato Academy this year. I was previously with Plato Academy from 2000-2008 and returned in 2012. I’m excited to be back again! My goal is to inspire and guide my students with love and respect while fostering their intellectual development through teaching of the Greek language. I believe that with continuous effort, patience, and dedication, the sky is the limit and I am excited for another successful school year!



My name is Eleni Nikolakakou and I was born and raised in Sparti, Greece. I love children because they are themselves and I believe that “when one teaches, two learn.”  I am passionate about Greek philosophy and Greek language.



My  name is Eleni Koutra and I was born and raised in Central Greece in a small village called Elateia.  I took my bachelor degree  as a kindergarten teacher at the University of Patras. ”If  a child can not learn the way we teach it,then we have to teach it the way it can learn.” -Maria Montessori.
