Pappas, Sophia, Administrative Assist. to the Director of the Learning Commons

Ms. Pappas was born in Montreal to a Greek father and a French-Canadian mother. While growing up in a multicultural society such as Montreal, she was exposed to diverse cultures giving her a broad perspective on attitudes, behaviors and ways of thinking.

Ms. Pappas completed her primary education in French and thereafter continued in English. With her family, she moved to Greece for 4 years and attended ACS Athens. It was a great experience and she has fond memories.  After completing high school, another move brought her back to Montreal where she graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor in Sociology.  During her studies, she gained experience as an EFL teacher and a preschool educator.  She envisioned opening a preschool that centered around meaningful, child-centered educational activities. Shortly after, she founded a large preschool in Laval, Quebec, which is still in operation today. This center was amongst the first to incorporate computers and a bilingual curriculum into its program. Much hard work and planning was involved in order to make it successful. Ms. Pappas obtained a Master in Education from the University of Montreal as well as a Graduate Degree in ECE from Concordia University..

In 2003 Ms. Pappas moved to Greece. Always in the field of education, she taught IB psychology and uptook several translation contracts as a freelancer. From 2004 - 2020 she also taught all levels of EFL in private schools as well as Business English in large companies, NBG and Alpha Bank.  

She is a proud  mother of three and happy to be part of the ACS Athens community. She hopes to make a meaningful contribution to the school she so much loved as a teenager.  

Ms. Pappas believes that education, hard work, and good principles are the key to success.
