My name is Lea. I am mother to three wonderful children and I’m also a qualified teacher. Being a lifelong learner I am always seeking for new ways to educate my students. Definitely, experience and formal qualifications are very important to us as educators, however I also hold the strong belief that personality also goes a long way in teaching.
Only a happy and contented person can raise happy and contented children. Only curious teachers are those that can awaken curiosity from within their students. Only loving teachers are able to create an atmosphere of love, cooperation and trust in their classrooms.
Being a person who is full of wonder, I always feel excited by life and my profession. It is this wonder and curiosity that allows me to transfer this enthusiasm to all of my students. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing children listening with their eyes lit up following me, their teacher, into a world of adventure, a journey of discovery and new ideas.
It is true to say that not all teachers have the answers to everything and no one teacher can be the source of all knowledge, therefore I also consider myself a fellow traveler, explorer, learner and inventor! I like to guide my students and accompany them. My aim is to inspire all of my students to study, discover new worlds though learning that will help them open new doors and afford them enduring discoveries.
My main objective as a teacher is to cheer and encourage the children when they are successful and to help, support and guide them when they really need it. In my classroom I want the children to learn meaningfully within an atmosphere of joy. I try to structure my lessons in a way that will help children to cooperate, enable them to share ideas, and to learn from each other.
Language is subject that fills me with wonder. It is fascinating that people are able to turn thoughts into words in order to communicate with one another. The Slovak language is closest to my heart because it is my mother tongue. It is a privilege to enable my students to understand all aspects of this beautiful language.
Slovakia, although modest in size, is another of my wonders. Even though I have traveled all around the world, Slovakia, its people, culture, nature, and history is where my heart lies. Slovakia is home. I am happy to share my love of Slovakia with each and every one of my students
Come and wonder!
