Aneta Juźwin

Hi everyone! My name is Aneta Juzwin and I am an English teacher with nearly 20 years of experience. In accordance with my motto - "Who dares to teach must never cease to learn" - I constantly involve myself in trainings and activities to hone my skills in the field of using technology in the classroom. My interest in technology started with a course of CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) I took while doing my master's degree in TEFL at St. Michael's College in Vermont (USA). Since then, I have always been an advocate for integrating technology into teaching. I also place a high value on online safety. I undertake a number of initiatives to raise students' awareness and to develop good online practices.

Agnieszka Zatoń

After earning my master's degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Warsaw, I entered the world of education to explore my passion for foreign languages and teaching. I started this adventure as a kindergarten teacher and a freelance translator, but I very soon realised that this was not a perfect fit for me. Fortunately, I didn't have to wait long to find my dream job, which was, and after 6 years still is, teaching English in CLV LO in Warsaw. In this relatively new bilingual secondary school, I have a unique chance to teach wonderful and open-minded young people, and I genuinely believe that this is my true calling. What I absolutely love about my job is that I can take part in various trainings, projects, exchanges and amazing initiatives like our EngLife project :) I'm an active person who likes travelling, learning new things, meeting inspiring people, and therefore I'm really looking forward to our cooperation!

Hello everyone. My name is Monika and I've been a teacher for 17 years. I work in high school CLV LO in Warsaw and I teach English language and Social studies in English to students in bilingual groups. My students are from 14 to 18 years of age and they are very curious, open-minded, eager to broaden their horizons, young people. In my class I encourage students to have a voice, ask questions and participate actively in conversations regrdless of their level of confidence. I believe that taking up challenges thus gaining new experiences contributes a great deal to teacher's self-development which in turn has invaluable and indisputable effect on the whole process of education for young generations.
