Bachelor's in Special Education Teaching & Master's Degree in Educational Administration, Inspection and Planning.
Hello, my name is Banu BUDAK, from Turkey. I live in Aydın, the beautiful and historical city on Mediterranean Sea.
I graduated from Special Education Teaching department at Gazi University. I also have a Master's Degree in Educational Administration, Inspection and Planning at Adnan Menderes University.
I have been working as a special Education teacher since 1994. During the last 24 years I have had the opportunity to support children and adults who need special education. (at kindergarten, primary school, secondary school, and counselling and research centre as a volunteer or private tutor.)
I have been teaching the abilities of self-care, Daily life and social adaptation, literacy and Maths. I have always been eager to make progress on studies and methods on how to facilitate their life and assist them more effectively.
My first European Project experience was Comenıus Project in Germany. After this experience I have participated in many projects about the disabled and in Civil Society Organizations as a volunteer. I have also been Bocce Technical Board Member and Bocce trainer in Turkey Special Athlete Federation. Unified Bocce Olympics for mentally disabled and the Autistics are held in Turkey every year.
I have been lecturing to primary and Secondary school teachers in Special Education field and studies. I also work as an education co-ordinator in Aydın.
