My name is Ruby Matuszewski. I was born in General Santos City, Philippines, and moved to Warsaw in 2009. My adventure with working with children began with babysitting and tutoring of preschool age children in the United Arab Emirates. When I started my work in Tequesta I was amazed to find out how much I love it, and how rewarding is being a part of my student’s discoveries and success. As a mother of three, I had opportunity to foster his growth and development. There is nothing more gratifying than watching a young child learning something new, knowing that you have been a driving force behind that growth. This passion for nurturing my own child and others led me to continue my learning in Early Childhood Education as my second studies at the University of Warsaw.
My name is Paulina Gołoś. I graduated from the first degree in Pedagogy of Early and Preschool Education at the Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities, graduated with a Master degree in the same faculty at the Maria Grzegorzewska University in Warsaw. Currently I am continuing my postgraduate studies in Pedagogical Therapy with Early Development Support.
Working with children is my greatest passion and gives me tremendous satisfaction. The biggest joy for me is a smile of a child and his progress. I constantly broaden my knowledge and skills and learn new methods of working with children. In my work the most important for me is responsibility and concern for the safety of children. Watching children in my group and staying with them daily is a great pleasure for me and motivates me to further work.
I was born in Siedlce. I have a younger sister Julia, who is starting high school in September.
I have the first degree of the Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in Warsaw and completed postgraduates studies in the field of Early and Preschool Education. I have many years of experience in working with children. With TEQUESTA kindergarten I have been since the very beginning of its existence. Working in kindergarten is a great challenge for me and at the same time a great joy because I am fascinated by the way children perceive the world, their sincerity and openness. Every day I experience how great satisfaction gives me helping them grow and discover the world around. During my classes I use different methods of teaching, which I try to adjust to children’s interests and needs.
Privately, I like travelling, learning foreign languages and reading books.
I am a graduated from the Faculty of Pedagogy at the University of Warsaw, specialty Pre-school and Early Childhood Education. I have been working as a teacher since 2010.
My adventure with Tequesta preschool I started in August 2013.
It may seem trivial, but working with children gives me the most joy, satisfaction and fulfillment ever!! Staying with children, teaching them, hearing: "I love you Mrs. Marta" makes me the happiest person in the world :)
Besides kindergarten (contrary to what my children thought last year:) I have my own house and I do not live in kindergarten:), I'm interested in music (Depeche's whole soul), cultural anthropology, developmental psychology of children and, as befits every teacher , literature – I am addicted to reading.
My name is Magdalena Stachelek. I graduated from the Teachers College of Foreign Languages in Ostrołęka at University of Warsaw. I have lived in Warsaw for three years and for two years I have been teaching English in TEQUESTA preschool.
Working as a teacher is for me very responsible but rewarding job. It is a great pleasure for me to watch children’s growth and observe how quickly they absorb new knowledge. Children’s smile makes every single day worth all this immersion. When I was a child I was dreaming about working as a teacher when I grow up. And now I can say that my dream came true.
“My name is Ada, I am from Mexico and I am an ESL and Spanish teacher”
My story began in a city called “Chihuahua” Oh, yes, like the cute dog! J I grew up in a bilingual environment and since my mother is a kindergarten teacher, I guess I inherited her love for children. I have a M.A. in English and ESL and a M.A. in Asian Politics. My teaching adventure began during my university years in Mexico, teaching English to children in language schools and Spanish to my university classmates from the United States and Canada. A few years later, I crossed the ocean to live in France, Austria and Germany as an Au-Pair sister; after those wonderful experiences I knew I was meant to teach lovely little people. Fortunately for me, after love brought me to Poland, I found Tequesta a place, where I can truly say that children and teachers can enjoy the magical process of learning and the honor to educate the next generations.
Funny facts! Teacher Ada loves laughing, dancing around, traveling, jalapeños, sombreros and of course… Chihuahua dogs! Just kidding J. By the way, did you know that teacher Ada was once a beauty queen? You don’t believe me? Ask her yourself! J
In the kindergarten I work as a teacher’s assistant. I started working in TEQUESTA in December 2016. I am very pleased with working in the kindergarten as I love contact with children very much. I am the mother of two boys.
In my free time I focus on art of decupage, I like travelling.

Jestem absolwentką Uniwersytetu im Jana Kochanowskiego, Wydziału Psychologii i Pedagogiki, ukończyłam również Zarządzanie w Oświacie na Uniwersytecie Stefana Wyszyńskiego oraz Pedagogikę Przedszkolną i Wczesnoszkolną na Uniwersytecie Łódzkim.
Swoją przygodę z przedszkolem, rozpoczęłam wiele lat temu w Republice Irlandii, gdzie najpierw będąc nauczycielem w grupie, a później dyrektorem placówki, zdobywałam swoje doświadczenie przez prawie dekadę. Kocham pracę z dziećmi i z ludźmi. Uwielbiam patrzeć jak nasi wychowankowie dorastają i nabywają nowe umiejętności, jak uczą się nowych języków, kontaktów i życia.
Cechuje mnie radość życia J
