After my return from studies in Australia in 2004, I started working for the OPEN GATE – Boarding School project. I was a member of the foundation team of this 8-year secondary boarding school in Babice near Říčany. I was in charge of the recruitment of foreign teachers, design and distribution of marketing materials, school equipment and the introduction of school uniforms. I was also responsible for the organisation of the school open days and other marketing events, as well as functional budgets. After the school opened, I worked as part of the management team. As an office manager, I was responsible for the coordination of the after-school educational program and I was in charge of communication with external service providers for the school and its large premises. I also worked as a social science teacher, drug abuse prevention specialist and a career development counsellor.

I’m from Australia and my professional experience teaching and caring for children started 10 years ago. I graduated from school in my hometown – the Sunshine Coast, having completed 2 years of Early Childhood studies, and went on to work as an assistant with children aged 0-5 years. Two years later, I became a Group Leader for a 2 to 3-year-old class, where I was responsible for the development of creative educational programs and assisted with the implementation of the national early-childhood curriculum. During my university studies, I was a founding member of the Kuya Collaborative – a community aid project assisting street children and their families in Manila, Philippines. After graduating, I travelled to Slovenia where I have been a children’s English teacher at Berlitz International School, Ljubljana. I’ve also undertaken Berlitz English camps for the past 3 years.

My first experience with preschool children goes back to 2013, where I worked as an assistant in Karlínské spektrum, working with kids aged 3-6. Later on I was accepted to Jeden strom, z. ú. preschool, where I worked for four years as a teacher. In my class I have integrated children with language barriers or other special needs. I have worked with specialists and personal assistants on daily basis to ensure the best possible care for integrated children. Because I find my work to be my passion I applied to the Faculty of Primary education at the Charles University in Prague in 2014. During my studies I specialised in arts and preschool drama education, which I find to be very fun and useful in my daily work. I find joy in what I do and am very happy to now get to work in such a beautiful and friendly environment that is The Globe.

cooperated with ecological centre Zvoneček, where I was in charge of free activities for children.

26. 2. 1984 Teacher University of Ballart - Bachelor of Education

I have always loved working with children, so moving into teaching and development was a natural choice for me. Having studied in Australia, I am qualified in Primary Teaching, Sports Conditioning and Natural Resource Management. I also hold various qualifications relating to swimming instruction, with a large portion of my work history at a leading swim school back home in Australia. Through teaching, I’ve had the opportunity to witness a wide range of teaching methods and have been faced with many and varied opportunities; experiences which I believe will assist in delivering more engaging and appropriate content to my current and future students. In particular, I’m eager to encourage children towards healthy relationships with physical activity and to facilitate a deeper connection with and understanding of our natural world.

The early years are such a formative period for children, so to have some influence in determining their future successes is extremely exciting and fulfilling.

During my work experiences I act as a teacher, educator and integrative teacher.
I dedicated my educational work firstly as a main educator in child respiratory hospital and later as main manager of campus at Open Gate Boarding school in Babice. Here I co-created a system of support for students with special educational needs and also provided individual reeducational lessons. I taught in both nursery and primary school as well for nineteen years. The last eight years I worked as a teacher and an educational consultant in the primary school Nový Prog.
For the last sixteen years I have been engaged in the work with children with special educational needs including the children with weaken performance, learning disabilities, but with talented kids as well.

Work with children of all ages confirmed me the truth of knowledge of our important teacher Jan Ámos Komenský “All main branches, which should have, the tree loses from its trunk during the first years, so later on they can be just growing. It is the same with human being – in the beginning depends everything. The beginning determines the meaningfulness or emptiness of the life.” I will try to help your kids with the successful beginning of their educational start.
