Marios Mazaris is a very different and unique teacher.

He is the teacher we all wish we had at school- he clearly loves his job and his students.

‘Kyrio Mazaris’ not only wants to teach the ‘curriculum’, but also deep level thinking.

And he succeeded. How? He shared the writings of his students on Facebook, where he asked them to write how they think they did. The children wrote their opinion and he rewarded them for their effort. The result is wonderful and brings smiles to the faces of those who read them.

“These days are so weird- we listen to people who scream about how we should be, look, weigh or dress. At the same time, in class we discuss that there is no measure of comparison, there is no rule, but only the feeling of happiness for everyone, choices and mood. At the same time others invest in your shame, we invest in the ‘Well done’. And we started saying it, continuously and continuously,” the teacher posted.

“Every child writes a good comment about themselves, a word of encouragement… Because we love ourselves, however it is, and become our best version, not because we owe it to someone or anyone obliges us, but to us. Today, as I had my students spelling notebooks in front of me, I was thinking ‘love ‘is the word rarely a child will spell wrong.

“Young children thankfully show it, adults lack what they get and especially what they give. Do not become like them. Love yourself as you are and then you will be able to share your love with others,” he concluded.
