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 – incredibly fun little creatures and good friends.

A positive attitude towards children accompanies me from an early age and that is why I graduated from secondary pedagogical school. Immediately after graduation, I started working as a kindergarten teacher. During this time I took courses in children’s yoga and first aid for kids and completed my studies at university in the field of preschool and extracurricular pedagogy. In addition to working in kindergarten, I organize summer camps and lead exercise clubs for children. Currently, I dedicate time mainly to my two daughters, with whom I love going for trips to nature.

I longed to be a teacher since elementary school. During my educational career, I focused on languages, obtained an international professional certificate and started teaching English at Helen Doron. At the same time, I started leading an English class in kindergarten. I specialize in teaching for children from 1-7 years. I really enjoy working with children and being their companion while exploring the world with them. At EduArt, I work as a teacher’s assistant and continue my professional education. In my free time I like to relax and travel. I am a great animal lover. In addition to a dog and cats, I also have a parrot.

I have babysitted children since I was a teenager. It helped me to learn how to communicate with them and perceive their needs. During my bachelor’s studies at the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University, I returned to work with children after a short break, and at that moment I realized that I would like to devote myself fully to work with kids. So I started studying in this field and expanded my education. Working with children fills me with optimism and joy, I like to support and help them in one of the first socializations in their lives. I like to inspire them, but at the same time children are also an inspiration for me. In my free time I play sports and I would like to pass on the joy of movement to children in the form of exercises, dances, walks and playing games.

Being a teacher is the most valuable and natural thing that has ever happened to me. The work of a preschool teacher unites everything that brings me the greatest joy in life and that enriches it with meaning at all levels. Most of all, I like to laugh with the children, sing, play musical instruments, read and, last but not least, listen to them, discuss everything they are interested in and be inspired by them. My work is also my hobby, and I consider it another of their undeniable advantages that I can work and continue studying it at the same time. In the future, I would like to enrich my knowledge in special pedagogy studies.

TAYLOR LEWIS

teacher’s assistant

My name is Taylor and I’m originally from California, USA. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and have been living in Prague since 2019. My experience with children includes babysitting, being the oldest of 3 siblings, and being an Aunt to my niece and nephew. After working in an environment that depleted my energy, it led me to pursuing a profession that would bring energy and joy into my life, which is for me, working with children. With a passion for teaching and the positivity and liveliness that children bring, I knew this was something I wanted to pursue. Being able to guide and observe children learn, grow, and be curious through this stage of their life is extremely fulfilling, but as much as I am teaching them, they are also teaching me. Children are inspirations and remind us to be present, curious, and playful even as adults.

My name is Kateřina and I’ve spent my whole life in Prague. While growing up, I always had the tendency to take care of others. Thanks to my specialization, I’ve acquired education and experience in health, nutritional, and social care for children in preschool and for the elderly. I was previously involved in orgainzing activities for families with children and worked as a movement trainer for children. The desire to work more closely with children led me to personal development and professional qualifications in the field of education. Children are an important part of my life and seeing joy in their eyes is the most beautiful reward.I spend my free time with my family. Together, we use every season for sports, hiking, or relaxing at home.
