Getting to know you... Jelena Krzanicki
Where would you call home?
Belgrade, Serbia where I was born and raised; and London, UK where I most recently lived for almost 15 years.
What languages can you speak?
English, Serbian, Polish, and basic French.
What brings you to Warsaw and what was your journey to get here?
My husband wanted to expand his business in Poland, so after thinking about it for a while, we just packed up and moved. I had previously lived (as a child) in Africa and also spent 10 years studying and working in the US, so this move seemed like a simpler endeavour.
Who have you got at school here?
Milena in Year 1 Whales, our gentle giant.
Any other children?
Jovana, she turns 2 next month and tries to join Milena’s class each time she is out of her pram at DAB.
How did you get involved in the PTA?
Mirella Young, the DAB Coordinator, was literally the first person I met on DAB campus during the new families’ orientation day. I was on the PTA Committee at our old school, so Mirella had me signed up in minutes.
What do you do with the PTA?
I am a Class Friend and I also help out with some event organisation at DAB.
Best thing about volunteering with the PTA?
All the lovely friends I’ve met and the smile on Milena’s face when she sees me around school.
What would you say to somebody thinking about volunteering for the PTA?
Just do it!
What’s your favourite thing to do with your family in Warsaw?
Sunday morning family stroll to pick up fresh doughnuts.
Can you tell us a joke?
How did the hipster burn his mouth? He ate the pizza before it was cool.
