EDUCATE FOR THE FUTURE

Founder and President

Transylvania College | The Cambridge International School in Cluj
started in 1993 as a small kindergarten in Simona and her family’s apartment. „At the time it was an act of courage, driven by my passion for educating children in a nurturing environment. Ever since then, we have been constantly building a culture of excellence and challenging the status quo in the Romanian education system.”
Transylvania College is today the only school in Romania to offer a complete educational track from nursery through high school, on two lines of study. The Romanian line is accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education. The International Line follows the National Curriculum of England, the school being granted British School Overseas (BSO) status by the Department for Education in the UK. Transylvania College is the only school in the region to offer Cambridge International Examinations for GCSE and A-Levels. The school has also received the High Patronage of Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Margareta of Romania.

Author

25 years after founding and developing Transylvania College, Simona Baciu decided to resume all her experience acquired over the years in writing the book entitled The Teacher Within: A Mindful Journey Toward Well-Being For Teachers In The 21St Century. The book was published and written in partnership with Susan Shapiro, author and expert in education. The collaboration with Daniel Shapiro, PhD, Founder and Director of Harvard International Negotiation Program, brought this book international recognition and added value. The Teacher Within is a journey of 100 days that challenges the readers to look within, find their core values, and discover the spark that keeps their calling alive. The 21st century calls for radical change in approach to education. Teachers are leaders with a well defined strategy, compassionate and motivated educators, skilful communicators who know they need to become learners themselves and adapt their skills and knowledge to the ever-evolving technology.International Educator.
