Primary Teachers

We are very proud to recruit teachers who nurture and inspire our students. Primary school is the pillar for the future education and our teachers always strive to provide a safe and friendly space for our pupils, where they will have a chance to discover and nurture their passions.

For the safety of our pupils, all our employees have to provide satisfactory references, qualification documents, as well as undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance.

Adrian Leczycki
Music

I started playing piano at the age of 7 and continued my music education until I gained a Master’s degree in Composition and Theory of Music at the Academy of Music in Łódź. Since 2009 I have been a member of Arthur Rubinstein Philharmonic Choir.

I have been teaching Music in BISUL in all three sections since the school was founded. As a Suzuki piano teacher, I follow a method that is based on the “mother tongue” approach. I believe that every child can learn to play an instrument as they do have all the abilities required to learn their first language.

Marta Ksiazczyk
PE

I am a graduate of the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw. From the age of 10, I have practised fencing. During my sports career I won several medals in Polish championships and was appointed to the Polish national team and was able to represent Poland at international competitions.

I believe that sport has many benefits for young people. It shapes their figures and characters, adds self-confidence and strengthens discipline. Physical activity is essential for the harmonious development of children and adolescents.

Adam Czaplicki
PE

I hold an MA degree in Pedagogy and BA in Physical Education. I have been a teacher of physical education for five years, as well as an instructor of many disciplines: football, swimming, volleyball, basketball, animator of sports activities, organizer and manager of winter camps for young people, life guard, First Aid instructor. I am active, empathetic, and cheerful. I try to have an active, modern approach to my work. 

I am happy to spend time actively with young people, and their smile gives me the greatest satisfaction from my work.

Katarzyna Witczak
Form Tutor Year 4

I graduated from English Philology and Early Years Education. I have been the Head of Primary for three years now, and I am extremely lucky to be working with a great group of talented teachers.
However, it is teaching that remains my favourite and most rewarding part of the job. The wonderful thing I have learnt is that you can teach the same content in hundreds of different ways – I love the challenge of inventing new ways of presenting and practising material in class. I believe teaching children is an exciting adventure for everyone involved.

Andrew Davies
Form Tutor Year 3

After completing my degree in History at the University of Liverpool, I spent a number of years working in local newspapers. In 2015, I obtained my PGCE and trained to become a teacher in my home city of Leeds, cutting my teeth in year 6.

It had long been a dream to live abroad and teach in an international school, so after three years of teaching in Peterborough, I moved here to Łódź. I flew over for my interview in 2019 and immediately fell in love both with the friendly, supportive atmosphere you pick up on as soon as you set foot in BISUL and with this beautiful city.

Anna Kaniewska
Form Tutor Year 5

I was passionate about Maths and Geography since primary school but have chosen the “queen of the sciences” and have studied mathematics at the University of Lodz.

My teaching career started 10 years ago in London where I received English teaching qualifications (QTS). I believe that everyone can find something enjoyable in Maths. It is my great pleasure to assist and guide pupils on their journey through graphs, equations, and numbers

Agnieszka Ratecka
Polish

After gaining my Master’s degree in teaching Polish at the University of Lublin, I completed my Master’s degree in Sociology at the University of New Orleans, while working as an assistant at the Intensive English Language Program at my college.

Living in a unique city like New Orleans was always exciting and taught me the importance of being flexible and adaptable. I like working at BISUL and enjoy building strong relationships with my students.

Anna Skura
Polish

Irrespective of the fact that I have been teaching for many, many years, teaching Polish classes still gives me a lot of satisfaction. It is a never-ending journey into the world of literature and language studies, during which we discover the sensitivities of the words.

In my spare time, I like to read, watch movies, and plan holiday trips. However, France occupies a special place in my field of interest, and French is the second subject I teach.

Marta Mozolewska
English & History

I have been a teacher for over 20 years now. I have been working at BISUL since 2014, mainly teaching English, History, and Geography in years 5&6, but other groups or subjects don’t scare me either.

Every summer, I teach English for Academic Purposes at universities in the UK and also examine candidates during Cambridge and Trinity College London language exams. I believe in cooperation, not competition, and encourage my pupils and students to reflect on their own learning, in order to improve it.

Magda Wierzbinska
Assistant Year 1

I am a graduate of the Department of Educational Sciences at the University of Łódź. I started learning English at the age of 6. I love children, and in my job, the most rewarding thing for me is watching pupils’ progress. In my free time, I like to read books.

Monika Gieras
Form Tutor Year 1

As a child I often played as a teacher. My dream came true in 2007 when I began tutoring. Just before graduating from the University of Łódź, I started teaching English in a language school. For a few years, I was building my joyful experience of working with the youngest ones. Then I got an opportunity to develop my teaching and pedagogical skills in junior high school.
Observing children’s achievements, being by their side, helping them to grow and believe in themselves, all that inspires my teaching passion every day.

Anna Kedziora
Art & ICT

I have been a part of BISUL community since 2014. I graduated from Education through Art at the University of Łódź and Computer Science and Information Technology for Teachers at Wyższa Szkoła Informatyki i Umiejętności in Łódź. In my work as an Art and ICT teacher, I combine my love for manual skills and attention to detail. I’m into electronic devices and the possibilities they offer. As I am also fond of music, I play the guitar and the church organ. I spend my free time cycling and reading books.

Agnieszka Stelmaszczyk
Spanish

I am a Spanish and English teacher at BISUL. I graduated from Spanish Philology with American Studies at the University of Łódź. I spent one year of my university career in Seville, Spain. I’ve got a few-year experience in teaching children, adolescents, and adults. 

Before I started my adventure in BISUL, I taught in private schools and worked as an interpreter and translator for Vías y Construcciones S.A. I´m studying French, so I can easily put myself in my students’ shoes and realise what learners’ needs are. I love travelling and photography. I’m also into mindfulness and naturopathy.

Shweta Parmar
Form Tutor Year 2B

My teaching journey is a lifelong commitment to learning. I bring in 11 years of teaching experience. The true passion and love for kids, new knowledge, and skills make me more effective as a professional. The feeling of accomplishment and contentment to see them responding to my teaching has been the greatest inspiration for me.

I come from a family of teachers. I have earned my master’s degree in English Literature along with a diploma in Child Psychology and Business Administration degree in India. When I came to Lodz there was no British International Schools, and I have witnessed BISUL coming a long way demonstrating huge growth. I am fortunate to be a part of this excelling institution, sharing my expertise with ks1 and ks2 for the BISUL family.

Iwona Balut
Polish

I have been teaching Polish for native speakers in BISUL since 2015. In 2007, I got my MA degree in Polish Philology. As I believe personal development is very important, I also completed post-graduate studies in career consulting and speech therapy. I have worked with children of all age groups including those with special educational needs.

Before I joined the BISUL team, I had worked in Polish schools as a teacher and class tutor. BISUL is a place where my dreams of open and creative education have come true. I love teaching, which is reflected in my lessons. My priority is the students’ development and progress. In my free time, when I am not busy chasing my three daughters, I like watching films, reading books and playing board games.
