Natalia Wilińska

Preschool Principal

My name is Natalia and in my everyday life I am a mother of wonderful son who amazes me every day :)! I am a Clinical Psychologist by education, I graduate of the SWPS University, and professionally a Preschool Principal at Tequesta Żoliborz.

I started my journey with education a long time ago, slowly getting to know every aspect of working with children. For many years I worked as a psychologist, supporting teachers, parents and, of course, children. The experience I have gained over the years has made my work also my passion. I think that not many people can do what they love in their professional life, and I am so lucky that I can.


Working in Tequesta gives me many challenges, but also a lot of pleasure. I start every day with a smile on my face. Thanks to the fact that I am HERE, I had opportunity to meet a lot of inspiring people who motivate me to take a new step everyday!

Grażyna Dąbrowska

Polish Teacher

I have a Master degree in the field of Pedagogy, speciality Preschool and Early Chlodchood Education at the Maria Sklodowska-Curie University in Warsaw. I have been working with children during my studies. Working with children is my passion and one of the greatest experiences. Every time when I am teaching them I can learn something new. Every child is individual and has different interests but during my lessons everyone will find something special. I use a lot of methods of teching, which I try to adjust to children’s interests and needs.  During my free time I love drawing and painting so that is the reason why I am doing a lot of art works with children. The ability to see the children’s progress is for me the best motivation for further work.

Justyna Sasin

Polish Teacher

My name is Justyna Sasin. I graduated specialization of pedagogy of work and I got a master degree in pedagogy of early childhood education at the Warsaw University. Maria Skłodowska-Curie. During my studies, I had many practices in kindergartens and schools strengthe motivate me to work with children. Working with children allows me to enjoy the small things they do. The smile and flash in the child's eyes provide me with a sense of well-fulfilled duty. Working with children is my passion, my needs and their feelings are important to me.
It is important for me to let children learn to work independently, to think creatively and to be curious about the world around them. I still want to improve and develop my skills.

OLLY LOUIE CASTILLO

English Teacher

I was born in one of the largest islands in the Philippines called Oriental Mindoro, 9,738 km away from Poland. In the Philippines, I have three brothers and five sisters. We are one big family.

Living in Poland from 2011 I was working as a private tutor of English language for children here in Poland. I also work as choreographer/dancer of folk dance Filipino dances for our Filipino community which is in Philippine Embassy Warsaw. As a dancer, I had a few times chances to perform in front of diplomats and representatives of Polish Government. Occasionally I am also being invited to play roles in a commercial movie.

For me, working and helping children was one of the greatest experiences I ever had in my entire life. I think teaching and entertaining the kids are my passion.  And I like to share my knowledge with children, inspire them and to be a part of their life in their generation. I used to I feel that I miss my family, but since I work in preschool surrounded by the children who remind me younger part of my family, my missing changed into involvement and professional passion.

And we Filipinos treasure family and relationship, and we value the hard work. I use this values in my own private life and work in Poland.

Klaudia Sokołowska

Polish Teacher

My adventure with teaching children I have started in the second year of undergraduate studies in the field of pre-school education with early school education. Since then, (it is already  6 years), I share my passion with the youngest. This is a profession that gives me a lot of satisfaction and drives me to even more creativity. When I work with children, I always try to develop their independence, personal culture and interpersonal relations, taking into account their individuality.

My other passion is roller skating, which I gladly infect my children while learning to take care of their own health.

Magdalena Golec

Polish Teacher

Light years after obtaining a Polish language teacher diploma and soon after graduating at relaxation and yoga studies I discovered the exciting world of the Toddlers. For longer time I have been interested in psychology and human brain, nervous system, emotions and social competences. With enthusiasm I termed for a daily care teacher. This was it!
Children are wonderful cause their natural growing up, changes, openness and lack of predictability. It's fantastic to preview Theirself in Their individuality! I’d like to support Them in their pursuit of independence and self-determination – In Their meaning, and in the acquisition of self-awareness and sense of causativeness, as well as in arousing curiosity and trying.
Working with Toddlers, I use my empathy and respect for the Human Person, the desire of knowing Others and looking into Their worlds, the need to support Them and respond to Their behavior, the desire of creating a safe and conducive space, knowledge of culture and social phenomena, authenticity, tendency to observe, but also the urge to activity and frequent switching in tasks. And always – smile.
Before my work day, I like to move my body in running or gymnastics, and after work – to experience: reading, theater, trips and journeys, preferably on bike, with my Husband, music, people... getting inspiration for the time spent with Toddlers :)

Naomi Mwanza

English Teacher

                                                                          Life is full of hills

 “Loving the hills” is an attitude adopted toward training as a young athlete. Most people train on flat land because it’s easier. But I would intentionally seek out hills. Life is full of all kinds of “hills.” Once you accept this, obstacles and challenges you face don’t matter as much because you understand they’re supposed to be there. When things get tough, remind yourself it’s just a hill. And once you get over a hill, there’s a valley on the other side.  (Janine Shepherd)

                                                                          Who I am in life

 My name is Naomi Mwanza, I was born in Chingola one of the cities in Zambia and that’s where I grew up, we are six in the family, three girls and three boys. I did my primary and high school education in Zambia and later moved to Turkey with my family in 2014. In 2015 I moved to Warsaw Poland that’s where I started doing my Bachelor’s degree in economics at Vistula University and obtained a BA certificate in Economics.

I am very passionate about education because it is something I honestly believe will transform a lot of children’s lives. Working with children is a rewarding experience and one that offers lots of fun, every day is different. It is always my dream to be part of preschool to help children to learn, grow, and develop to their full potential and ability. 

                                                                            What life means to me

Life to me means family and friends those whom I can trust and those who trust me. I like teaching in order to communicate with kids, interacting and cooperating with others toward the achievement of common goals, I always want to learn new things, process new information as well as analyzing problems in order to find a solution.

                                                                            Hobbies

 My hobbies are watching documentaries, dancing, singing, eating junk foods, shopping and traveling in order to meet new people, learn about other people’s cultures, communicate with people, and eat different foods.       

 

                                                                  What’s my outlook on my future?

It’s been a year since I graduated from the university, I will probably still be living in Warsaw Poland and pursue my master’s degree in one of these course finance and accounting, international business or professional communication. After my education I guess I will be ready for marriage and have a lovely family.

                                                     Conclusion

As I said earlier I was born in Zambia in Africa so I would like to visit more of the European countries, I want to explore in order to learn more about the cultures of different countries and meet different people. Hope you enjoyed reading my short life story as I enjoyed writing it for you.

Swati Patil

English Teacher

Hi, I'm  Swati Patil an English teacher at Tequesta


I was born and raised in India which is one of the largest countries in South Asia, believes in Unity in Diversity which means in India, people of diverse religions, cultures, castes, sects, etc. have been living together.

I completed my Bachelor's and then Master's in Biotechnology. I also graduated with a Bachelor's in Education from India with a total of 3 years of experience in education. My career started as a science teacher in India.

My Passion is to teach and help every child what to do when they grow up. Children need to learn to have confidence in their abilities and their work. They also need to learn to have confidence in themselves. They need to understand that they are special, that they are wonderful for just being themselves.

As a teacher, I hope to influence children not only in their core curriculum but also in their ability to solve problems. In my classroom, I don’t necessarily want the students to memorize facts, but I want them to learn and retain the information on how to find the answers.

In my free time, I loved to do crafts, painting and travelling which helps me define/prepare
