Maria Klausman


Higher Level Teaching and Learning Assistant

I first arrived in Bratislava 10 years ago intending a short visit but I instead found a wonderful home here in Slovakia. I'm originally from New Jersey and I attended university at Manhattan College in New York City to study Government. After graduating, I travelled throughout Europe before studying further in Austria, Norway and Hungary. Before joining BISB, I taught EAL in Bratislava for eight years.

I began my career at BISB with two years in Nursery supporting our youngest learners, which has been an amazing and rewarding experience. Now I'm with year 1 and I am looking forward to another great year at BISB!
