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.

„Working with children, their parents and teachers of our school makes me incredibly pleased and I like creating the background that brings joy to everyone involved."

I always wanted to work with children. This was one of the reasons why I graduated from a secondary school of services with a focus on social activities. Thanks to this I can take care of children. I like to teach children new things and see the progress they make. This brings me joy and energy.  I am most looking forward to the joint art activities and reading fairy tales to the children.I’ve known about The Globe since 2017, when I was babysitting a boy who attended this kindergarten. When I found out that they were looking for a new staff memeber, I knew right away that I had to try it, and it worked out successfully. I am happy to work in a beautiful environment and the team here at The Globe. It’s a magical dream job for me.

My first experience with the education of children I have gained during my studies at secondary pedagogical school. During my university studies at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport in Prague I worked as an instructor of outdoor activities for various age groups of children to adults. I have also received a license for school instructor of skiing, snowboarding, climbing etc. After my university graduation I started to work as a teacher in a kindergarten, where I worked for two years and were I realized that working with children is the perfect job for me.

My life has revolved around children since high school, where I graduated as a kindergarten teacher. This was followed by work experience in kindergartens, both “ordinary” ones and in a kindergarten for children with special educational needs or in one of my own, varied by studies at various universities (second level teaching, preschool pedagogy, first level teaching, educational management) and interspersed with several maternity leaves. It is not only with children that I find fulfillment in various creative activities, playing the piano, relaxing by being in nature and organizing children’s camps in the summer. I try to approach children in a “non-educational” way, in the spirit of a method based on partnership, communication and agreement. In the last few years, mathematics has also come into my life, in a form that is understandable even for a “kindergarten teacher”, i.e. mathematics using the Hejny method, which has become my next love and which also led me to the Earthsphere Kindergarten, with which I have been working for several years.

 

You can tell a good kindergarten by the fact that the teachers and other people in it are happy. Only happy teachers can create an environment for happy children. And Globeis like that.

I have been working with children for the past 15 years. Including, the position of ‘Nanny’, seasonal camp teacher. And currently I also run a sport activity club for preschool children. I have a special interest for working with disabled children, and have successfully completed a basic course in sign language for the deaf. I attended the Institute of Pedagogical and Psychological Counseling, and qualified as a teacher assistant. I have witnessed The Globe blossom since 2011, as I have been working as a part time nanny for a child that attends the preschool.

26th Octoberr 1993 Teacher UK PedF

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.

I have worked with both pre-school and school-age children for seven years at the English International School Prague and the Prague British International School. I was involved in the integration of children with different mother tongues and taught Czech as a foreign language. I ran an intervention program to develop language and social skills in children aged 4 -5. I was also in charge of a team of teaching assistants and completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Sheffield in 2017 and 2018. I believe that establishing a warm relationship between teacher and child is essential for a child to feel safe and truly open to all the stimuli in the nursery environment. Only in this way is the teacher able to get to know the child’s interests and then develop the child as a guide on this basis. I like to work with children with the theme – creating and dramatizing it. I am very much looking forward to new performances on the stage of the Kindergarten Zemkoule.

My name is Maria Alexandra Martin. I was born in Venezuela. I speak fluent English and Spanish. My first experience working with children was in my mother’s nursery, and I really enjoyed it. Afterfinishing my degree in Marketing, I moved to USA tolearn English in Raleigh, North Carolina. Then Ireturned to Venezuela, where I met my husband, who is from Chicago, USA. We got married in Hawaii. We have a wonderful daughter, who is 19 years old, she will move to New York this year, to study Business Fashion. I was a learning Coach for Florida Virtual School in Melbourne, Florida, USA. In 2014 we decided to move to the beautiful city of Prague.I always show my passion and dedication for all the children. I value the relationship between teacher and the child. I understand that each child has strengths in different areas and learn at their own unique pace. I am an advocate for children’s happiness. My goal as a teacher is to make a positive impact in a child’s life. For me, playing and exploring are the best ways for a child to learn, especially little ones. I always keep in mind that the children are the center of the education, and not the other way around. I want all the children to look at me like I am the same as them, and to feel loved and safe. Children are individuals, who have the right to be noticed and to be heard. Teachers must have the appropriate approach with the children, to offer them a healthy and respectful environment. I’m a very easy going person, who will be always available, to listen to the parents concerns, and work together toward their child’s development.

I finished my Bachelors in Education in 2015 in India. I have been teaching children ever since. Back home, I taught English Literature and Indian History to middle school students and gave Grammar and Conversation lessons to high school students. I moved to Prague in 2017 and started teaching at a kindergarten. It has been one of the most challenging, yet the most rewarding experiences of my life. I worked with a group of teachers to formulate an Educational Programme. I also spent afternoons teaching music to the little ones and English to older school going children. I play the guitar, some piano and have recently started learning how to play the djembe. One of my favorite things to do with the kids is outdoor treasure hunts and I am glad that there is a forest close by, so we can explore together.  I am thrilled to be joining yet another team of experienced professionals and most importantly, learning from my students.

The pace at which children this young absorb and reproduce what they've learned really fascinates me and if I can be part of this magical process I think I'm in the right place!
