Hi everyone! I am an actress and voice pedagogue living in Wroclaw and Barcelona, mother of three wonderful and lively children. I grew up in Barcelona, studied acting in London and settled down in Wroclaw, where I have been working in a very interesting institution for theatre research and making. My work takes me to fascinating places in the world and away from home often and I am always trying to find a way of juggling my family life and carreer, often bringing my children along with me on tours. Even though the children attend a kindergarten and a free school, I believe very much in natural learning, that is, learning according to the interests that appear in the child at a specific moment of their development and worldschooling during our travels:) I love spending time in nature and enjoying the moment.
We live in a charming little house in Wroclaw with its own garden, not far from the center. We have a spare room up in the attic where you could stay. It is in an area called Krzyki, a quiet residential area with various parks around.

Poland is a great country to visit with a fascinating history. The city of Wroclaw thrives with culture attracting people from all over the world to visit. We speak English at home, Polish and Slovak. So language learning is definitely an asset. We have travelled a lot with our theatre work meeting many different cultures, so we would definitely have much experience to share on this field. Sometimes, you might be asked to join us on some of ourwork travels to take care of the children while we work. We can offer the experience of working with children in an un-typical framework, helping you to develop your pedagogical skills “outside of the box”- a challenge to anyone who wishes to learn to work with children. Also a back of the scenes experience of what it looks like to be a parent performer!
My partner is working in three paralel jobs, which means that almost all the family logistics sit on my shoulders. I need help with taking care of my little one for a few hours a day while I pick up the older two, or attend rehearsals, lead workshops, do shopping or cooking... or simply catch up on sleep.
Childcare: someone to pick them up from school or spend time with them while we need to work. It is important for me that it is someone who enjoys spending time with children and is able to have fun and adventures with them and is curious about life and learning as children are:)

We live in a three floor house in the neighbourhood of Krzyki, a peaceful residential area surrounded by parks and old German houses. It is not far from the old center and a 20 min bicycle ride there or 15 mins by tram. We have a room In the attic which we have converted into an office/ reading room with a double bed, or a little room in an attached house close to the kitchen. The conditions are basic but cosy:) you will have access to the rest of the house. We can share the cooking shifts, but I will provide the food for the meals.
