Dardan Hajrizi - Manager of Operations and Marketing
Dardan Hajrizi was born in New York in 1992 and alongside his two brothers had varied educational experiences during his time as a student. Due to the nature of his father’s work, Dardan and his family had to move around often from New Jersey to Virginia to Kosova. It was because of this constant shift of locations that Dardan was exposed to different systems of education and styles of teaching.
Dardan attended and graduated from the American University in Kosovo (RIT Kosovo) in 2014 where he was given the opportunity to tutor students who struggled with the English language. It was during this time that Dardan developed a passion for teaching and understood that his efforts could make a difference.
In September of 2014, Dardan began working as an elementary school teacher at International Learning Group School, where he taught English, Science, Social Studies, and Drama over the course of four years. In 2017, Dardan obtained his Master’s Degree in English Language from AAB University and decided to make teaching his career path.
In 2018, Dardan joined the efforts to launch Teach For Kosova as a Co-Founder alongside Egzon and Antigona and is currently the organization's manager of operations and marketing.
