Ms Moetz, who has obtained Austrian, as well as international qualifications, is supported in her new role by experienced and dedicated teachers.
The Lower Austrian native, having first completed her studies in Austria, was then awarded a Fulbridge Scholarship in the USA. Ms Moetz has over 21 years of teaching experience, 18 years of which she spent aboard, teaching at schools in the Bahamas and Angola.
