NATIVE ENGLISH TEACHER
I come from Ohio in the United States. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with a minor in child studies from Miami University. I have been working with children for 10 years in a variety of educational settings, and I have loved every second of it. Everything from summer camp counselor, to outdoor educator, I’ve done it all! I moved to Prague in November of 2018 to teach English and obtained my TEFL certificate. I teach by providing children with a fun, safe environment where they have the opportunity to be creative and develop their learning skills through a variety of activities, songs and movement.
