Hi, my name is Martin and I consider myself truly fortunate, as for me, teaching is not only my profession, but also my life‘s mission... Not to mention, great fun!
I enjoy sports, traveling, history, a good sleep and making other people happy! The feeling of sharing my knowledge and experiences with my students is simply priceless.
I began my teaching carrier straight after finishing university and 10 years later, having spent seven years teaching at the gymnasium followed by three years at a primary school, I’m still enjoying it. Funnily enough, as a teacher, what I enjoy the most, are the excursions outside of the classroom and the school; where the learning is a combination of hands-on experience and fun. Having a lesson outside, maybe in a park or a historical part of the town-center, has always had a bit of magic to it. I have also been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work alongside third country nationals, where in addition to various activities we were also devoting time to teaching them the Slovak language.
Currently I am a part of the project that introduces and offers experiential learning (hands-on learning) workshops to various primary schools. I believe experiential and practical learning should be the at the very base of education and in all educational institutions. I believe individual subjects should overlap and complement each other as opposed to being taught in isolation.
Teaching of the Slovak language has, in comparison to other subjects, a great advantage in that it also includes the culture, history, geography, traditions and other whole wealth of information about our beautiful Slovakia.
