Hi Everybody! 

I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Sahil Bathija, and I am the Head Teacher and along with this role, I will be teaching the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades this year. This will be my second-year teaching at Anglofonní základní škola. I graduated from Bangor University with both bachelor's and master's degrees in Marine Biology and Zoology. I also hold a Certification in Nursery/Primary Teaching and Child Psychology. Most of the returning parents/families know me as Mr Sahil from the Preschool Head Teacher and the After-School Club Coordinator but with a new year comes a new challenge and I’m very much excited about what’s to come in the new academic year. Before joining Anglofonni school, I worked as a part-time teaching assistant and an office administrator in a preschool facility and led lessons and sports clubs for children aged 4-6 years old. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, doing fitness workouts, and playing cricket. I enjoy teaching kids and seeing how they progress and improve their learning. A fun environment is always a key to ensure that the kids are excited to come to school every day and see them grow up on their education.

Sabrina Saidkosim

I’m Sabrina, I’m from Tajikistan but I was raised in Czech Republic for the majority of my childhood. I went to the Prague British International School where I had the privilege to learn english from a very young age, and I graduated from American Academy in Prague. 

I’m currently doing a bachelors in anglophone studies at the metropolitan university, but in the future I plan to get a conversion masters in psychology in hopes to peruse a career in adolescence counseling. 

This will be my first year at Anglofonní základní škola. I’ll be teaching both the preschool class and the after school club part time while I complete my studies. My plan for the year is to implement group work in order to encourage the children to cooperate in a team, as well as include a variety of educational games to keep the children engaged and interested in the lessons.

I’m an aunt of six wonderful nieces and nephews whom I love dearly and enjoy spending time with. I also enjoy spending my free time reading, journaling, and taking photos on film.

Hi guys, I'm Nick from Providence, Rhode Island, the smallest of states in the United States.  I was a teacher for 7 years in San Antonio Texas before coming to Czechia to coach basketball.  Since my first year of coaching basketball here, I have focused on teaching English, mainly Cambridge exam preparation to 19-21 year olds.  

In my free time, I love to travel, I have been to 35 countries and 26 of the states in the US, with Panama and the Greek Islands being my favorite places.  I also have a 300 liter aquarium full of marine fish at my flat which is great for relaxation.  

Also, in the summer, my girlfriend and I run an English camp in her village near Hradec Kralove, this summer we had a total of 50 students from ages 5-12 for the two weeks we organized the camps.  In the future, we are looking to expand our camps to overnight camps in the Krkonoše mountains.  Having fun while learning is extremely important to me and I will do my best to make sure your kids are doing exactly that.

Marek Šedivý

Hello! My name is Marek Šedivý and I am from Benešov near Prague. After graduating from an eight-year grammar school, I graduated with a degree in Primary School Teacher Training in Physical Education from the Faculty of Education at Charles University in Prague.  

 As a part of my internship, I taught all subjects in all grades at the first stage of Elementary School. My favourite subjects in elementary school include Science, Homeland Studies, Czech and Physical Education. I feel that being a teacher has a huge potential not only to fill inquisitive minds with knowledge and skills, but also to teach children skills, help them develop positive attitudes and values that will help them success in today and tomorrows society and to live happy and full lives. 

My hobbies include sports, music  both listening and playing (playing guitar and singing), painting, hikes in nature, family, friends, social activities of all kinds, school and word. 

I look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions, you can reach me by e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 





Ing. Katarína Dvořáková

I was born in Vranov nad Topľou, where I graduated from high school of economics. I received my degree at the Slovak University of Agriculture in 2008, where I studied Garden and Landscape Architecture. My studies reflected my talents for mathematics, artistic creation and love for the environment.

From 2015, I am the Chairperson of the Administrative Council at the founder of the school. In 2018, I took a teaching assistant course and started to perform this position at Anglofonní základní škola. At present I support learners at lessons of Czech language, mathematics, primary science and other subjects.



Greetings! My name is Zdeněk Dvořák and I am the founder and director of our school. I graduated from the Faculty of Law at Charles University and also received a degree in Psychology from the Faculty of Arts at Masarykovy University. Currently I am studying Primary Education at Charles University with the hope of gaining more experiences and learning more about teaching. In addition, I have completed two years of study at the University of Wales. Since 2008 I have worked at a foreign multinational company and I have experienced daily contact with foreign colleagues. 

I contemplated moving with my two sons for work and better educational opportunities to the UK. In the end we stayed in Prague and I decided to start Anglofonni Elementary School. Thanks to my graduate degree in psychology I developed an interest in education. My experience practicing law has made it easier for me to fulfill the legal and administrative requirements associated with establishing and operating a school.
