  • Description

    Description

    We are a Polish family consisting of parents and three children.
    We invite you to our beautiful Silesia in southern Poland.
    We live in the suburbs of Rybnik (it looks like a village). We both work in culture, NGOs, artistic activities, we are photographers.
    We are open people, we like books, music, art, philosophy and we love to travel, but first, we are parents.
    We have 3 children, older ones study and work, and the youngest, Inez has been a homeschooler for the last four years (now she is starting higch school in a classic style).
    The elders are 25 and 27 years old, the youngest is 14 years old.
    We live a little crazy life - we do a lot of activities outside the home, which is why we are looking for people with open minds who will be ready to help us in Inez education :) and take care of the home, cooking, and order.
    We started the reconstruction and renovation of the second house (which we are preparing for one artistic and educational project) - we are looking for someone who will help us make it warm and climatic place :)
    It is important - we want you to join us in simple everyday activities, such as lighting a fire in the fireplace, daily cleaning at home and cooking, because we do not run a hostel, we will try to create a family with you :)
    What can we offer
    Lots of fun with us, warm atmosphere, some charming Silesian dialect (not too much :)) interesting experience and more :)

    Help

    More than 4 years ago we started homeschooling for our youngest daughter Inez because we would try possibilities offered by this alternative education. We decided to organize this because Inez learned in a music school too
    So that, she had more time for their other passions and meetings with friends. Now she decides to try classical educations again, but still, we look better ways to learn for her.
    Two years ago we bought an old house and we started work ... We have some idea for it...but it's constantly evolving.
    We are open to people, who will want to share with us their experience, culture, and language. We are also seeking a person to teach with Inez: English (she speak in it, more than basic level ), Spanish (elementary level), Japanese (beginners) and other school subjects, help us in the house and garden. We need people who help us in rebuilt and the renovation of our second house ( which we prepare for one art and education project)too.
