I come from a thriving creative city in Southern Ontario, Canada, called St. Catharines. It is here where I began my passion for the visual arts. This passion followed me throughout my tenure at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, where I attained my Bachelor of Fine Arts, circa 2014. Since graduating from University, I acquired a strong desire to get out and explore! I have had the privilege of traveling throughout most of Canada, from the East Coast of Prince Edward Island to the West of Victoria, British Columbia. These trips only inspired me further to continue my travels and experiences! As such, I became interested in teaching English as a valuable career path for myself, satisfying both my love of travel and my desire to teach. I completed the TEFL/TESOL/TESL course in March 2018 from Oxford Seminars. I had been offered contracts from Japan, China, and Spain, but the opportunity that struck of the highest importance to me came from Pascal Connect in Rybnik, Poland. I am beyond excited to begin this journey with Pascal Connect, and to truly dive into the Polish culture! I look forward to growing as a professional as the students and I collectively meet challenges and victories throughout our time together!

I enjoy being in nature especially hiking. I also enjoy arts and crafts and puzzles. I love animals and I have 4 beautiful dogs. I enjoy volunteer work and have been apart of a local pet rescue organization for a few years. I am very passionate about helping people and animals, therefore my decision to pursue a career in teaching. I look forward to starting this amazing journey in Poland.

I was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up on the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. After many years in the administrative field, I decided to change my career to teaching English as a foreign language. This was to enable my desire to travel the world as well as to help make a difference in the lives of students internationally. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.
In January 2017, I obtained my TESOL certificate in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where I also taught until the end of June that year. From Vietnam, I went to Colombia, South America where I was a volunteer teacher for four months.
On arriving back in Trinidad for Christmas, I decided that Europe would be my next destination, so here I am in Poland teaching at Connect since February 12th, 2018. I am thoroughly enjoying the Polish way of life, and have loved sharing many aspects of my Caribbean culture with my students.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising and practicing yoga.

Hi, my name is Ashley. I'm from North Carolina in the United States but I've lived in many places all over the world. Most recently I lived in Los Angeles while I finished a master's degree in Intercultural Studies, and before that, I lived in Asia. I taught English in Japan for three years and loved it, so I decided to try teaching in Poland! I love traveling, and Poland is the 30th country that I have been to. While I'm here I want to explore more of Eastern Europe and learn Polish. I also enjoy reading, spending time outside (especially hiking and snowboarding), playing guitar, and baking. I love learning about other cultures and sharing my own, so I hope we can share a conversation someday!

My name is Hayley and I come from a town called Benoni, near Johannesburg in South Africa. Before moving to Poland in September 2015 I spent two and a half years teaching English in Thailand. Living in Poland has been a completely different experience.

I can't get anything done until I've had a cup of coffee (or six). I adore reading and I'd be lost without books. When I have a bit of free time I love experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes.

I don't like being cold so the icy Polish winters can get a bit difficult. South Africans aren't made for below-freezing temperatures! I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms in my food and you probably won't 
ever see me wearing the color orange.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all soon!

Hello, my name is Robert, and I am from Phoenix, Arizona in the United States. In the last few years, I have worked for Bank of America where I taught new hires as well as continuing education. I love working with people and helping them learn new things. I also love to learn and experience new things, which is why I am very excited to start working in Poland. My father was born in Wroclaw and always told me about how great Poland was, so in 2013 I traveled to Europe and spent a couple of weeks in Poland and absolutely loved it! I look forward to meeting everyone and experiencing Poland!

english teacher from USA

Hello! My name is Savannah Scott and I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico which is in the southwestern part of the US. I recently completed my CELTA in Berlin and I’m very excited to start my teaching career in Poland. I completed a short volunteer service in the US Peace Corps in Guatemala where I studied Spanish and lived in a rural mountain village. This experience taught me a lot about cultural immersion and I learned how much I enjoy working and living at the local level in different countries. Teaching English will give me the opportunity to live and work in many places around the world including Poland. I visited Poland a few years ago and fell in love with the beauty and the food so I can’t wait to live in Poland and experience everything this country has to offer.

english teacher from Ireland (endless energy)

Hey, I´m Sharon, the newest addition to Pascal Connect and the second teacher here from Cork in Ireland.  As a bit of a background, I worked in Irish Local Government as an urban planner for four years before deciding that I was too curious to see the world and had to do something about it! The plan was only a one year trip, but I quickly realized that to genuinely experience new cultures I had to slow down, live and work in those countries.  So I did a lot of volunteering on sustainable development projects in India, Central America, and Spain which indirectly led me to learn Spanish and also teaching English. I discovered this was a great way to use my energy and enthusiasm in a meaningful way and decided to do my CELTA teaching qualification in Spain where I taught for two years.  Sure enough, I got itchy feet and went on to travel in Patagonia followed by a year teaching in Uruguay in 2015 where I was involved in an innovative Government initiative to teach English remotely to primary schools all over the country.  The adventures have been fantastic and many students and fellow teachers have turned into lifelong friends, but seven years after leaving Ireland I decided it was time to move back closer to home and discover a part of my own continent that, quite frankly, I know very little about!  Everyone has been really welcoming and I look forward to both teaching you and learning from you throughout my time here.

Hi everyone, my name is Sian and I come from Ballito (also known as the Dolphin Coast) in South Africa. After teaching young children at a Pre-School for a few years I decided to do the TEFL course and venture into the world of teaching English. I am so excited about the prospect of teaching others and in doing so I also hope to further my education in the teaching field. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time taking hikes and particularly enjoy walking to find waterfalls that are off the beaten track. In my spare time I enjoy playing online games, reading and watching series. I have never travelled outside of Africa so I am very excited about the adventure that is coming my way (especially the SNOW, which I have never seen before). I am so privileged to be in a position where I am able to help others and I cannot wait to get to Poland to meet all of you and get started.
