I am a graduate of the Pedagogical University in Krakow, I completed five-year of studies in Master's degree at the Faculty of Pedagogy in the field of Pre-school Pedagogy and Early school, one-year optional Speech Therapy Study, and postgraduate studies in teaching Polish as a foreign language at UMCS in Lublin.
Working with children requires not only great patience but also creativity, which is why it is necessary. I am constantly expanding my qualifications and skills, which is why I have about 50 courses of additional training. I have been running my private kindergarten in Des Plaines for 7 years, and for 17 years I have been a teacher in Polish schools in the Chicago agglomeration.
My life goal and passion is working with children, which gives me great satisfaction and sense of professional fulfillment. My greatest reward is always a smile on my face. Working for so many years as a teacher/tutor I can fulfill your desire every day. My Motto: "What is not first in the senses, is not later in the mind" - Maria Montessori and .... that's why in my head an idea for a sensory facility was born ... for these little beings... Privately, I am a mother of two children: son Fabian 14 years old and daughter Zoe 7 years old. I have a wonderful husband who always supports me with all my ideas. I'm interested in fashion, children's development, and I love healthy cooking. In my spare time, I organize and decorate parties for family and friends.
Free time……. I have no free time!

I am also a Zumba and Yoga instructor for children. I've always known that I wanted to be a teacher, because working with children has always fascinated me. I love to see sparks of joy and satisfaction in the eyes of children who have just learned something new. When working with children, I focus on supporting the cognitive and emotional development of children in overcoming their difficulties, and above all, I am guided by the individual needs and abilities of each child to develop their potential and abilities.
My work is also a passion, which is why I constantly improve my qualifications and skills by participating in numerous trainings and workshops.
