Nina Gubbinsová

Director

My name is Nina Gubbinsová and the school year 2018 - 2019 will be my ninth year in Bumble Bee. The role of director of an international language school fills me with great satisfaction every day! It is amazing to lead a professional team of colleagues with the same goal: to have happy and cheerful children who respect each other and who all work together to create an ideal environment for learning about not only the language but life skills as well! It is fulfilling to see how the children blossom and discover the world through our school!

In my free time, Im dedicated to my two children and try to provide them with all the care that children in puberty need :-) Energy and vitality I gain through all sorts of sports activities depending on the season. Jogging and in-line skates are very in right now!

I use English language on a daily basis at home with my children whos we are raising in a bilingual environment. This experience allows me to empathize with many of the situations experienced by parents in the classical Czech family, as well as in bilingual or foreign family.

You can contact me with any questions about Bumble Bee and your children and anything that you need to tell or offer to us.

I gained lot of theoretical and practical experience in education and child personality development.

Since working at this school I have made lots of friends among our little bumble bee’s. :-) I learned a lot from them and I hope they learned a lot from me. After nine years at Bumble bee school I really feel that I have become deeply rooted in our team. My life is a continual educational process, I like to learn new things at anytime, anywhere and from everyone. I am very active in my life and I easily get excited about every little thing that makes life so wonderful.

Mgr. Petra Antoňová

Yellow Class Teacher

My name is Petra Antoňová and I have been working at Bumble Bee since 1999. In addition to teaching the youngest ones in the Yellow and Red class, I also teach older kids in the afternoon clubs.

I earned my teaching education at pedagogical high school and pedagogical college of Charles University of Prague. I studied English language at Camden College of English in London.

I love my work with little bumble bees for its creativity and diversity. Our days are different, unrepeatable and mutually enriching. Children deliver their joy, imagination and spontaneity, and I bring my ideas, experience and love for music and movement. I want songs, rhymes and physical activities accompany every our step. I wish for my children to absorb English as naturally as possible, such as in games.

My name is Oli Jokschová and this year I will teach the Red class. I have been working at Bumble Bee since  the Spring 2005.

I earned my teaching degree at Higher Professional School of Education in Litomyšl and my university degree at the Faculty of Education at Masaryk University in Brno. After graduation I spent six years in the U.S., where I studied English at Norwalk Community College, CT.

I have been working with children since my teen age. I cherish the time I can spend with them and always welcome an opportunity to enter their fantasy world. Every single day in their company is unique and joyful in some ways. Demanding of course, but rewarding.  You can see them grow, make new friends, have fun playing together, being fair to each other, become more confident, polite, supportive and responsible. Children´s life is full of wonder, it deserves to be treated with respect. I am looking forward to working with my new students in a creative way, where learning is so much fun.
