Alyssa Prokic

 Where are you from originally?

This is always a tricky question to answer as my Dad is in the Royal Air Force, so I have grown up in a few different places. I was born in Scotland and have lived in Yorkshire, North Wales and Cyprus. I would probably say that home is York as this is where my parents are now. 

 Have you lived in any other countries?

I grew up across the UK and as a teenager I spent 4 years living in Cyprus. Following University, I moved to Washington D.C. where I worked at the Nord Anglia school there. 

Where and what did you study for your education?

I studied Archaeological Science in Sheffield for my Undergraduate degree, focussing specifically on Early Human Evolution. When I decided that I wanted to be a teacher I studied an iPGCE in Early Years Education through the University of Sunderland whilst working in Washington D.C. 

How long have you been at TBS? 

This is my first year at TBS; I have worked with Nord Anglia for 3 years before moving to Warsaw.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at our school?

I love the curiosity and internationalism of the students, each day as a teacher I can learn something new or explore from a child's interest which results in valuable experiences to enhance my own teaching and pedagogical outlook. 

What are you most looking forward to in the 2019/2020 academic year?

I am really looking forward to another year at Dab and seeing the developments that are going to be made to our outdoor learning and the impact this is going to have on our youngest students.  

 Whose your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why? 

Jane Goodall. By changing the approach to the study of chimpanzees, she vastly developed what was known of the species and has continued her work by passionately advocating for conservation.  

 What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw, Poland?

I love how accessible the city is with plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and running. I am very excited to be able to make more use of the many parks and green spaces as the weather begins to warm up!

What do you miss most from home? 

My family, and chocolate - malteasers and twirls being particular favourites!
