Barbora Jelínková – Cajthamlová

Barbora, born in 1960 and graduated from the Faculty of Education, Charles University, in 1984, she has worked with children from pre-school age up to eighteen during her pedagogical work. With talents in the Arts, Barbora chose a professional career in art, creating ceramics, drawing, painting, working with glass. She has had exhibitions in various countries such as USA, Mexico, Izrael, Holland, England and others. She is a member of the Mixed Choir in Buštěhrad.

She has two children, in 2000 her daughter was born and in 2005 her son. She has helped to establish a society, which arranges various cultural events, especially for children. In Makotřasy, where she lives, she arranges ‚Night with Andersen‘ for children seven years and older (staying overnight with books, plays, reading etc.). She has established a singing circle.

Since the begining of 2014, she has co-worked in a private pre-school in Kněževes as an English language teacher. While working with kids she uses thoroughly her applied arts skills. She likes the pedagogical approach of Montessori teaching, though for her kids she has chosen a school with expanded language classes (where they have transferred from Montessori Primary School in Prague 6). She is of the opinion that each system (Montessori for example) is only a tool and it is good to combine different approaches.

Christophe ("Kryštof") Kanta

Born 1991 in Prague, Christophe worked at the Bead School, a pre-school in Prague from 2010. First he held the position of assistant teacher and later of full teacher. Children at the Bead School loved Christophe so much that we, at AngloZS, are excited to have Christophe as one of our teachers at the pre-school stage.

Native English speakers have described Christophe's English as perfect. As a child, Christophe attended an English pre-school (1994-1997). When he was in the seventh year at secondary school he successfully passed exams allowing him to enter grammar school starting at the third year. During the course of his studies he participated in three two-month exchange scholarships in English speaking countries – Ireland, England and Scotland. In these countries, the schooling of all subjects was in English. After completing his grammar school studies, Christophe completed a one year post-graduate study of the English language at the language school 'Mavo'. Christophe has been devoted to teaching children since 2006. Over four years (2006-2010) he worked with children on skiing trips in the mountains and during English language summer camps.

Christophe has gained the admiration not only of children and their parents, but also of other teachers with many years' experience who have had the opportunity to watch Christophe at work with children.

Zdeněk Dvořák

Zdeněk, born in 1977, is the Founding Executive Director of the School. His sons were born in 2010 and 2012. Zdeněk worked for a global company providing ICT services from 2008 till 2017. Due to being in day-to-day contact with his colleages in Britain, where he also studied (2006 - 2007), his original intention was to relocate abroad and educate his sons there. This was the reason he enroled them in ‚Bead School‘, an English pre-school in Prague. Over time however the plan to move to Britain did not eventuate and so he established AngloZS to enable his sons to get their education in the global language of English.

Zdeněk graduated from Faculty of Law at Charles University (1995 - 2002). After that he graduated in psychology from the Faculty of Art at Masaryk University (2002 - 2008). His doctoral studies at the Faculty of Law, Charles University finished in 2009. In 2006 - 2008 he studied at the Faculty of Law in Cardiff University in Wales.

His training in Psychology gives Zdenek an interest in education, educational psychology and any subject related to psychology for teachers. His education in law gives him the ability to manage the administrative and legal particularities related to establishing and managing the School.
