Student support team

Kersti Türk

School counsellor

My home town is Tartu, but I feel like a very global person who loves travelling and meeting people from different cultures and places. I have experience in nearly every position in the field of education. My favourite discoveries have been related to people and their individual growth, brain research, lifelong-learning opportunities, environments that support learning and mental health. I believe in relationships. I believe that to love someone means to listen. I believe that good relationships are the bases for everyone’s learning, personal development, and well-being.

At Tartu International School I work as a school counsellor and social pedagogue – helping both our students and staff to find ways to take care of their well-being, as well as building social skills, learning motivational techniques, methods of stress management, and self-compassion.

Katrin Sild

Special Education Teacher

I work in this field, because it’s very interesting and challenging. I can help both children with special needs and adults that surround them. My educational background has given me knowledge of pedagogics and psychology. I am trained to find the best solutions for children and their parents, create and adapt assessment tools and learning materials and use all these techniques in my work.

Find joy in the little things!
