My adventure with teaching started during my studies at the Jagiellonian University, where I obtained my teaching qualifications. Since then, I’ve led several classroom activities for university and K-12 students.
In addition to my tutoring experience with grad students and summer interns, I have been participating in many K-12 mentorship programs related to promoting careers in STEM.
STEM Festivals and Science Fairs are one of my favorite outreach activities. I love sharing my enthusiasm for science to spark the interest of the general public.
I use social media for science popularization and for advocacy for positive change in the academic environment. Check my [Twitter](https://twitter.com/mariakzurek) and [LinkedIn](https://www.linkedin.com/in/mariakzurek/).
I'm an advocate for positive change in the academic environment. I've been heavily involved in associations supporting early-career scientist and promoting diversity.
