Ms. Naďa
Head teacher and Elves class teacher

She has worked in both business and marketing in multi-national companies, but, some time ago, her love for children directed her career in a different direction.

Naďa enjoys doing yoga, spending time with animals, and making creative handmade products. She has an adult son, 3 dogs, and a part-time bunny. She lives with her family in the countryside and cites nature as a beautiful source of inspiration for her.

Ms. Markéta
Elves class teacher

Markéta was born in the foothills of the Orlické Mountains. Her educational journey led her to study first in Olomouc, where she graduated from a secondary school focused on tourism, and then, later on, in Brno, where she studied English for a year at a language school.

Markéta’s desire to be with children has been a part of her ever since she can remember. Even though she has worked in a variety of professions, she has always found a way to spend time with children. She gained experience working as an instructor at a kids’ camp and also as a kindergarten teacher and assistant.

The turning point in her professional career came when she became friends with a clinical speech therapist in Prague who inspired her to investigate the field of speech therapy. Soon after this, Markéta began studying speech therapy at Masaryk University in Brno. She has been leading speech therapy sessions for a year now, helping children to train their tongues and communicate clearly.

Markéta likes to read, go to musicals, write short stories, and make toys and games for children in her free time. Working with children is one of the most beautiful things she could imagine having in her life and has become her life’s mission. She asks, "What in the world could be more precious than a happy child?"
