My name is Sahil Jayesh Bathija. I grew up in Prague, Czech Republic, and my family routes are from India. I am the Head Teacher of Anglofonní základní škola, and along with this role, I teach the 3rd and 4th graders. I am continually amazed by our dedicated staff and am proud to be in charge of a strong team that guides our School. This is my 3rd year teaching in Anglofonní základní škola. I graduated from Bangor University with Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Marine Biology and Zoology (focused on Primary Education). I also hold a Certification in Nursery/Primary School Teaching and Child Psychology. 
The primary school years provide a tremendous opportunity for students to learn, grow and challenge themselves in numerous ways. It is also a time when we all have the opportunity to foster curiosity, self-efficacy and empathy among our students.
Before joining Anglofonni, I worked as a Pedagogical Practitioner and Office Administrator in a preschool facility, leading lessons and sports clubs for children aged 4-6.

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.

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.

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.

I am currently back in USA for couple of months but I am planning to come back to Prague and continue teaching at our amazing school.

A warm welcome to all the parents! 

I’m Viviane and I’m the Special Education Needs Children Specialist. I’m here to support, guide, and embrace your children’s unique abilities and the potential they hold through the path of empowerment. A lot of children are labeled as “special needs children” but in reality, this means they possess abilities that allow them to use their executive functioning skills to their fullest potential. To be able to fully control and excel in these skills means taking control over one's emotions; this is paramount to success.  

I have been working with newborns, infants, and toddlers for the past 10 years as a professional nanny and as a coach focused on troubleshooting. I have worked with over 50 families and helped them navigate through the unpredictable journey that is parenthood. Studying psychology in early development and anthropology in Ohio has aided me in achieving the desired outcomes in what I do. 

When I’m not at school, I guide and coach mamas-to-be through their unique motherhood journey from pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period as a certified doula. I make sure they have all the information they need to make an informed choice. Just as with children, I believe that bodily autonomy is the path to empowerment. Additionally, I write articles exploring these topics.  

One of my passions is the one of practicing self-care, which includes reading books, cooking, and immersing myself in playing board games. I’m a proud mama to two kittens, Louie and Archie.

Hi I’m Raavi Singh. I’m from India but been living in Prague for two years and been teaching preschoolers for a little less than 2 years now as well. I started teaching at anglofoni last year December. I studied arts and that’s my hobby as well which makes it so much more fun working with kids and exploring their creativity that we loose somehow is the schooling system. At the end of the day no matter what career, a little bit of creativity always helps to make it better. I’m teaching English, arts and everything in between to the preschool class and science/art club in after school. 

I love traveling and incorporating real life issues and needs into fun activities. Doing the most I can that felt like our teachers missed out on. I’d love to hear from you, if you have any suggestions regarding your kids and/or any complains. Together we can make it better for them that we didn’t get.

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.

In addition, I have completed two years of study at the University of Wales.

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.
