HANNAH CRAFT

teacher

My name is Hannah, and I am a native English speaker from Mississippi US. I moved to Czech Republic last August and I have had an amazing year here. I feel that Prague could even become my second home. I came here after graduating from university, where I studied speech and hearing sciences, working closely with children of many different ages. I have always loved children, but during my studies, I discovered that working with them was truly my passion. I love to help them understand the world around them. During my free time, I love reading and writing poetry. I am also passionate about traveling,being in nature, and cooking as well.

ESTER KAŠTÁNKOVÁ

teacher

I have been working with children of different ages for 7 years. I studied pre-school and extracurricular pedagogy and taught children at preschool and primary school. I also led free-time activities for kids in Czech Republic and England. I have a patient, respectful approach to children and I see spending time with them as mutually enriching. My greatest interest is music, especially piano and flute.

MICHAL KŘÍSTEK

teacher

MICHAL KŘÍSTEK

teacher

Since my childhood I have been surrounded by music. I studied singing at the Prague Conservatory and worked as an opera soloist. With my son’s entry to the preschool, I had the opportunity to work there as a volunteer. I found myself much happier with children than in theater. I completed my education and also worked as a deputy director. I created a year-round educational system of etiquette for preschool children. My passion apart from music are books, especially fiction, philosophy, psychology and politics.

KATEŘINA FIALOVÁ

teacher

I have always liked people and children especially. That is why I decided to work with them. I have completed my Bachelor degree in Psychology and Special Education and I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Psychology. I like singing, reading, going on trips with children. I like to do also crazy childish things with them because there is also a piece of a child in me. In addition to people I like cats (one lives with me) and flowers (mainly in my flat, which is more of a garden)

ANHELINA ŠESTÁKOVÁ

teacher

ANHELINA ŠESTÁKOVÁ

teacher

Although I am originally from Ukraine, I have been living in Prague almost since I was born. I graduated from high school and I study college with a focus on management and economics. In addition to my studies, however, I found space for self-realization and love in working with children and I also extended my education in this field. Children are an inspiration to me, they enrich me and give me energy. It matters to me that they always feel comfortable, safe with me, and that I also give them a part of myself. In my free time I like to travel, read or spend time in nature.

My relationship with children has been warm ever since. That’s why I have been working as an instructor at children’s camps for many years. I am currently studying at Newton College of Business and Management.
EduArt is a place where I am satisfied. I love to help creating an environment which children are happy to return to and supporting them to develop in harmony. When working with children I put emphasis on teamwork and responsibility.
I like traveling, photographing and hiking in the nature.

teacher, speech therapist

ADÉLA STEJSKALOVÁ

teacher, speech therapist

As a kid, I wanted to be a teacher, but during my studies I got interested in speech therapy, which really captivated me. It connects everything I like: working with children, feeling that I’m passing on something nice and helping someone. Most kids have speech therapy associated with pleasant memories – as a place where they went to play and soo it should be also taken. I graduated in psychology and special education at Charles University. I love animals and nature. At home I keep 4 degus degus – incredibly fun little creatures and good friends.

JITKA HADRAVOVÁ

housekeeper

I am the mother of an adult daughter, but the time when she was discovering the world as a child was the most beautiful for me. And that is why I have been working for the little ones for almost five years now and I am happy among them. In my free time I love to walk in the forest, read, grow orchids and in the summer herbs at our weekend house.
