Speech Therapist and Special Educator
Marek Lansdorf graduated from the Faculty of Education at Charles University in Prague, where he specialized in Biology and Health Education. During his studies, he realized that there were not enough educators in the Czech Republic trained to help pupils with learning difficulties. This made him decide to return to his former university to study special pedagogy with a focus on speech therapy. During his studies, Marek learned how to create and apply preventive programs at primary and secondary schools. He completed most of his practice while teaching biology and health education at the Secondary School of Nursing in Prague.
Marek is happy to teach Biology in Nature here at Wonderland and enjoys learning alongside his students. Hearing feedback from his pupils is very important to Marek, as he then knows how best to direct the topics and teaching methods of his classes. He also believes that a safe classroom environment is one of the cornerstones of teaching. In his free time, Marek travels throughout the Czech Republic and around the world, as he loves getting closer to natural beauty. He advocates a healthy lifestyle and enjoys roller skating, reading, culture, and art.
