"My enrollment in the postgraduate qualification program at New Bulgarian University 'Resource Teacher' is one of the best decisions I have made so far. The program is structured extremely well, starting from the basics and unfolding to the latest trends in inclusive education. Each course is presented in an interesting and interactive way, richly incorporating informal teaching methods, and the most valuable aspect for all future specialists is its practical orientation. The lecturers in the 'Resource Teacher' program are among the leading experts in this field in our country. They possess rich and valuable experience, gained both in Bulgaria and abroad, and are not hesitant to pass it on to us, the students. They build our confidence that we can be the ones to develop inclusive education together with them." - Maryana Georgieva
