Sarah MohamedOdpolední program Více informací
Hello! My name is Sarah and I come from Egypt. I am currently in my last year of my bachelor’s degree program in international relations and European politics. I have taken part in summer camps for kids aged around 4-12 and my rather heartening experience, particularly with the younger age groups, incentivized me to become part of the after school program as I’m very fond of the special bond I seek to create between myself and the little kids I deal with. I am looking forward to being the best mentor I could possibly be for your children at the ASP.

Hello my name is Ms. Sarka Bocianova and I will provide Speech Therapy sessions for the Early Years students at ISB. I am a Czech native, from Brno. I studied in Olomouc as a Speech Therapist and after university I completed my attestation as a Medical Speech Therapist and opened my private office for children and adults. I love my job, because speech is the highest human ability. Thanks to it we can communicate together and develop our society and the whole human world. I would be really grateful if I could assist in building and developing the communication between a child and a caring adult (parent/teacher/family member). I look forward to working with all of the Early Years families at ISB.
