Alexandria Vogl

Hello! I am Alexandria Vogl and I come from sunny California in the United States and am one of the school’s native English speakers. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Humanities with a special concentration in English, Art History, and History. I also have a Master’s Degree in Student Development and University Management.  

I have lived in the Czech Republic since 2018. During my first year I worked as a senior teacher at a preschool and led afternoon English lessons for children aged 6-13. Before I came to the Czech Republic, I worked at an American university where I taught an introductory college course and worked as an Academic Advisor. Education has always been an important part of my life and something that I put great emphasis on. 

I enjoy working with children and I hope to make school a place where children look forward to coming to every day. In my free time I like to explore Prague, go hiking and visit local museums. With great enthusiasm as an educator, I try to grow professionally and instill a love for learning in my students!

Hi everyone! My name is Maya and I’m from Long Island, New York. I graduated from University at Buffalo with a degree in psychology, and I am certified to teach English as a foreign language. I came to the Czech Republic in 2020; before moving here, I worked as a preschool teacher in Long Island, where some children were non-native English speakers.  

In my free time, I like to go hiking, dance, play football, and draw. I like to make learning fun, and I include plenty of educational games in my classes. I think it is important to create an environment where kids are excited to learn, and look forward to coming to school.

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.

Hi everyone! My name is Sahil Bathija, although I am a Czech Citizen; my family and I originate from India. I graduated from the University of Bangor, in the U.K., with a Masters of Science degree in Marine Biology and Zoology. 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 club for children aged 4-6 years old. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, doing fitness workouts, and playing cricket.

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.

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.
