I am a graduate of the Faculty of Preschool and Early School Pedagogy at the Pedagogical University in Kraków (MA 2004). In 2006 I successfully completed a one year course on the Maria Montessori Pedagogy in childhood education. The course was organised by the Polish Montessori Association in Łódź. Other post-graduate courses completed include: ‘Early Support of Development and Education for Autistic Children’ and ‘Education Organisation and Management’ offered by the Kraków Institute for Education Development (Krakowski Instytut Rozwoju Edukacji). I am a teacher with many years of pedagogical experience (I worked in an integrated Montessori preschool and in the preschool of the Jagiellonian University). I also run individual pedagogical therapy for preschool and early school children (including autistic children). I have completed numerous professional development training and conferences. I play the guitar and have completed several music and rhythmic courses. Help me do it myself (M. Montessori) is a motto, which I try to follow both in my work and in my private life. I have two daughters. It is a great joy for me to act as an observer and guide in the world of the child, to accompany children as they progress taking small or big steps and to support their development.
