Lili Hovhannisyan

Teacher assistant


  • International Baccalaureate Diploma program, Givat Haviva International School, Israel 

I am a teacher assistant at the Preparatory Years Centre at UWCD College and an alumna of GHIS with an IB learner profile and intercultural background. GHIS is the place where I have grown as an independent learner and a courageous leader.
I am very passionate about volunteering. I am a senior volunteer at Dilijan Community Center (DCC). During my tenure at DCC I have organized numerous events and learning programmes for youth. Prior to this, I was a “Youth right ambassador” at the Federation of Youth Clubs of Armenia. I have been a counselor assistant at Just Dilijan It camp at UWCD since 2017 and a graduate student of Tumo center for creative technologies. In addition to this my zeal in arts moves me to study visual communications and graphic design. I am looking forward to accomplishing my degree, to become a skilled and resourceful professional in the most relevant and interacted fields of design. 

What is the favourite part of the course you teach?
I am working with the youngest souls of the school and the best part of teaching is when I see them accomplishing something themselves independently. 

Which teaching method do you prefer and why? 
I think the best teaching method one can apply while working with kids is the visualisation of mostly everything. The kids are the best observers. 

Who is your role model or mentor or who inspires you?
My role model is my mother, she is the one inspiring me throughout my life. 

What is your life motto?
All you need is a simple “wish”. 

What are the three things you can't imagine your life without?
Family, creativity, and notebooks.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I play frisbee, learn languages, walk and make carpets.
