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!
After completing Bachelors in teacher’s education and Masters in Economics from India, I moved to Warsaw the green city in 2012. Since my teenage I love to invest in future generation and decided the best is knowledge sharing and education. Having experience working in Poland understanding the culture and nature of the kids in Europe. Music and cooking is my other passions.
I graduated from the University of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński in the faculty of Early School and Pre-School Education with introductive education. I come from Krasnobród, a picturesque town by Zamość in Lublin voivodeship. My passion for teaching reach elementary school when I got my first tiny blackboard to play with my siblings. My mother also advised me to take a career path for teachers. At this moment I know it was a wonderful decision and working with children is what I want to do in my life.
The decision I have made was motivated by professional experience gained as a trainee in kindergarten, primary school, and special needs school. My career as a teacher has started in 2015.
I consider myself to be a cheerful, warm and caring person. Family is a matter of great importance. While working with children I want to create friendly and stressless atmosphere, which aims to make children feel as comfortable as in their home environment.
In my free time I love to long distance bike rides, good books and cooking.
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.
I am patient,responsible and love working with children. I always dreamed to work with them,because its my passion. I believe that every child is special and unique in their own way.
with almost 3 years experience in teaching children English as second language. Working with children gives me the greatest joy when I see the enthusiasm on the face of the students and observing the progress. Other than love working with children I enjoy listening to music and dancing.
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.
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.
My name is Anna Pilip. I graduated specialization of special education at the Pedagogical University of Warsaw. I have been working with children a few years ago initially as an older sister next during my studies as a babysitter.
As far as I remember I always want to work with children. I think that every child is unique that every child has to be approached individually. The priority for me is the comprehensive knowledge of the child, satisfying his needs and create the conditions that ensure him a sense of security and trust. In contact with children, I try to show empathy, perceive, understand and properly respond to the emotions of their underlings.
Children are fascinated by their creativity, ingenuity, imagination, openness, and continuous readiness to act.
“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
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.
Mabuhay!!From the land known as Pearl of the Orient Sea, Philippines. My name is Jessica Ocera.Among 7,641 Islands of the Philippines I am very blessed and proud that I belong and raised in one of the wonderful Island in the whole world which is the Boracay Island. Taking 14 hours, travelling a flight distance of 6, 701 miles or 9,683kilometers, Philippines to Poland. It is a Dream come true, for a petite, determine, optimistic and enthusiastic person like me.

For almost 3 decades of my existence spent my years wandering which place my heart would belong to. Since I love travelling, adventures, as well as singing and any curricular activities. Being young at heart who loves to play and explore while learning. And finally I’m here embracing Poland. I believe God brought me here with a purpose. After few months of staying in Poland I’ve got a chance to work in a Pre -school. And now in this family, I am so grateful to be part of it. To impart my knowledge and wisdom while enhancing my own skills too.
For me being jubilant with kids around me, my passion and love for them, leads me to this field of work. As a working student during my college days I’ve valued education so much. Believing that education is the only treasure that no one could steal it away from you its worthy to invest on it. I love studying while enjoying learnings too, it is fun and exciting. Being surrounded by children are blissful, their innocent smiles, gestures, laughters and yells brightens up my day. Observing kids how they grow and nurturing them while in school, seing them improving in every single aspect that they posses. In this way my heart pound into happiness. It turns my loneliness into gladness, longing for family was eased. It is not a simple job; it requires love, passion, perseverance, respect, understanding, wisdom and patience all throughout. As long as you love your job, considering your students as one of your family .Loving them unconditionally, understanding them while teaching, correcting, enhancing, nourishing, developing and guiding them into the right path. Allowing them to grow in the Blissful and safe environment, letting them do things beyond, allowing them to develop their hidden talent and skills. For the children will be our future .It is our duties and responsibilities to teach them well and let them lead the way for better future generation. Our future relies in their little hands and its starts with our helping hands.
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 :)
Witam, nazywam się Monika Pamrów. Moja specjalizacja to wychowanie przedszkolne z edukacją wczesnoszkolną. Studia pozwoliły mi zdobyć wiedzę teoretyczną, dzięki której każdy nauczyciel może z dumą nazywać się również “pedagogiem”. Decyzję o kontynuowaniu edukacji na kierunku pedagogicznym podjęłam z uwagi na fakt, że pracę z dziećmi traktuję nie tylko jako ścieżkę rozwoju zawodowego, ale również, a właściwie przede wszystkim, jako pasję. Pierwsze lata życia dziecka są bardzo ważne dla jego rozwoju, nie tylko fizycznego, ale także intelektualnego, emocjonalnego i społecznego. Wierzę, że prawidłowe pokierowanie dzieckiem pozwala na stymulację jego rozwoju, a nie ma nic bardziej satysfakcjonującego niż obserwowanie jak dzieci rosną, uczą się, jak kształtuje się ich osobowość.
Miałam przyjemność zajmować się dziećmi na każdym etapie rozwoju, od noworodka, aż po dzieci w wieku szkolnym. W pracy z najmłodszymi, staram się dbać należycie o harmonijny rozwój dzieci, bez względu na ich grupę wiekową. Dostosowuję metody pracy tak, aby każde dziecko mogło się rozwijać i doskonalić, pokonując trudności. Ponadto cenię sobie aktywność fizyczną, ponieważ wierzę, że to ruch wyzwala w dzieciach największą siłę i kreatywność, dlatego też organizując dzieciom czas wolny, uwzględniam w nim gry i zabawy, również na świeżym powietrzu.
Jestem osobą odpowiedzialną, dobrze zorganizowaną i punktualną. Cechuje mnie dobroć i cierpliwość, jak również konsekwencja w działaniu. Posiadam kompetencje edukacyjne. Dzięki dużej kreatywności potrafię uczyć i przekazywać zarówno umiejętności, jak i wiedzę w sposób łączący naukę z zabawą. Moją pasją jest gotowanie co umiem również przełożyć na świetną zabawę. Praca z dziećmi sprawia mi dużą radość, a ich uśmiech jest dla mnie dużą satysfakcją i nagrodą za jej wykonywanie.
Hi, my name is Victoria Musesa. Am from Zambia. It was a great dream of mine to live and work in a foreign country. I have lived in Poland for one year and a few months, I live with two of my sisters in Warsaw.
I have been working as an English teacher for three years. I have a passion for children. I am a creative and ambitious young woman, I have a lot of ideas and plans for my future.
My friends and family say that I am a very funny and interesting lady with a good sense of humor. As soon as I meet new people who are happy to meet me. I feel extremely comfortable with them. I believe friendship is one of the most important things in life.
My hobbies are swimming, reading romantic books, listening to music, watching TV, dancing, taking walks and mostly to explore world-traveling because - I learn a lot from traveling.
I love different kinds of foods and I love to try out different kinds of new food. But my favorite meals are Italian, Indian, and Asian food. I think they are the best kitchens in the world.
Am also interested in pets, I love dogs. And I believe a dog is a man's best friend. Unfortunately I don't have one. But maybe in future.
I believe I will have a great journey with the people that I will get to have encounters with here at Tequesta School.
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.
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.
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.
