Amy Bivin-Bruni

Amy has been teaching English, Geography, Science, Technology and Art since 1991 around the world (North America, South America, Asia, and Europe). She started by teaching in middle schools in Japan with the JET Programme after completing a dual degree in French and English with certification in TESL. Next she taught French and English in a private language institute in Ecuador. After moving to Italy, she continued working in education in international elementary schools and institutions of higher learning in Rome, where she taught for over a decade. She is a certified Microsoft Innovative Educator, trained in Teaching SDGs and feels strongly about bringing the world into the classroom and taking her students around the globe.
Amy is an experienced teacher in a bilingual school with a passion for SDGs and Climate Education. She has been the Climate Action School Leader and Climate Action Project Ambassador for Italy since 2020.Amy tries to form global citizens who are sensitive to world issues by creating student-based activities and projects with measurable objectives. Fostering intercultural relationships for global student exchange is fundamental so I take my students around the globe and bring the world into my classrooms. She also tries to teach students to think for themselves and problem-solve so they can develop leadership skills and collaborate effectively in order to experience success in the classroom, but more importantly in life.

For the past six years Amy has also worked one-on-one with middle and high school students as a private language instructor. She also worked for an online European newspaper executing translations of current event articles.

Teaching Philosophy & Approach

I am a passionate advocate for Climate Education, emphasizing the urgency of addressing the climate crisis. My teaching approach centers on student-centered, project-based activities to create impactful learning experiences.

In my first year of teaching Climate Education, I facilitated a virtual exchange with a class in Africa, exposing privileged students to the challenges faced by their counterparts. This firsthand experience sparked empathy and a newfound appreciation for their privileges, motivating them to champion climate and social justice causes.

Global connectivity is a key element of my teaching. Through virtual connections with classrooms in various countries, my students explore diverse cultures and environmental issues. We\'ve virtually visited places like El Salvador, Antarctica, and the Caribbean, broadening perspectives and fostering a sense of global citizenship. I continually strive to engage students, encouraging independent thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills to prepare them for success in both the classroom and life.

Global connectivity is a key element of my teaching, broadening perspectives and fostering a sense of global citizenship.
