Where are you from originally? I was born and grew up in a town near Warsaw. I really enjoyed my childhood there as it is quite a small and very green town so as a child I spent most of my time outdoors.
Have you lived in any other countries? Before moving to Warsaw I lived in London for 7 years. I worked there at a community school for 6 years. I love London because it is such a vibrant and international city.
Where and what did you study for your education? I gained my Masters Degree in Pedagogy in Warsaw and I completed my teacher training in London. I also took part in Erasmus student exchange program in Sweden.
How long have you been at TBS? This is my first year.
What do you enjoy most about teaching at our school? The children are incredibly curious, imaginative and just simply amazing! Go Starfish! :)
What are you most looking forward to in the 2018/2019 academic year? Teaching my children and ensuring that they are all happy and proud of who they are and what they achieve.
Who is your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why? Janusz Korczak. He was an educator, a doctor and a writer. He devoted his life to children and was an activist for children's rights. Korczak loved children more than anything and he always put their needs and wellbeing at the heart of everything he did.
What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw, Poland? I absolutely love being back with my friends and family. I'm also super excited that I can get Polish food so easily - I absolutely can't wait for the strawberry season in June!
What do you miss most from home? Although my home is here, I also consider London my home. I miss how multicultural it is and how easily you can get authentic cuisine from around the world. I also really miss all my friends who still live there.
