Bulgaria is in dire need of good teachers, but it pays them less than any other EU nation. 23-year-old Aleksandar is one of the few stepping into the breach.
People willing to give up money and stability to teach are hard to come across, but for Aleks it was the right decision. Despite the low wages teachers receive in Bulgaria, he wants to make a change. Getting into the classroom was also a way to make him start believing in himself: "From now on I’m like a role model for my students."
