Subject Teachers

Polish

Mr. Maciej Łokietek

I graduated from the Polish Department in Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz. I am a qualified teacher and an examiner in elementary school and run training sessions for other teachers. In my career I have worked in both public and private schools. I have been working in the Canadian School of Warsaw since 2011 as a Polish and a  homeroom teacher. I prepare students for contests and olimpiads, and organize state exams in the school. In our school I am considered to be the guardian of the accurate Polish forms.

As a typical Gemini, I am interested literally in everything. Although in my free time I read, visit big European cities, study the musar movement, meet my friends, I may seem a bit boring at times (at least that’s what I think 😉 ).

English

Mr. Wendel Ernstzen

Ms. Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska

I have been a qualified English teacher for 12 years. In my teaching career I have worked with students of all age groups and at various levels of proficiency. In the Canadian School, where I have been working since 2012, I am primarily preoccupied with linguistic accuracy, trying to unravel the mysteries of English grammar to our students. I also prepare students for English contests, olympiads and international Cambridge exams.
I graduated from the ESL department at MCS University in Lublin. In my academic endeavours, both master and doctoral, I focused on the methodology of teaching English as a foreign language. For more than a year I have held a PhD degree in applied linguistics.

In my private life I am a mother of a 5-year-old, continuously trying to brush up my parenting skills. I love fiction, theatre and live music. I am also interested in healthy lifestyle and nutrition.

For the last three years I have been working as a French teacher in the CSoW.
I started my adventure in Preschool last year. I participated in IB trainings and methodological workshops such as Action in the PYP, and Concept-Based Learning.
