Humans of ISO

Why?

People and their stories, feelings, memories, opinions, experiences. Each of us has a relationship with the school. The school gives us a lot of things and moves us further in our journey through life.

I come from Ostrava and I like very much this city and its people.

I love sharing my Czech language,…

Petra Helebrantová

At a school, I have been always looking for SOMETHING MORE THAN JUST EDUCATION. I believe in the experiential learning, the project based learning and the community education. I largely promote reading workshops. On purpose, I choose provocative and challenging titles and questions, which whirl…

Ivo Helebrant

I have been working in the field of education for many years now. It has been a wonderful experience and  it still fulfils me with joy, excitement, new challenges and unforgettable experience. This is a paradox of my life - of course, I did not want to become a teacher at all. Every year I learn…

Lucie Kuluri

When my students first asked me how did I happen to be a teacher, it made me think deeply. I studied Czech and English language and literature at the University of Ostrava because I simply loved languages, reading the books, and writing into the drawer. However, the first idea of being a teacher…

Lukáš Pěchula

It's hard to find a vocation in life that would enable to a man on his deathbed to look back and know that his life had meaning. I think that teaching is the profession which can offer this opportunity. I teach German and Czech language and literature. My own love for creating, writing, philosophy…

Art has always been a passion of mine no matter its form. I followed my passion and graduated at the University of Ostrava with master degree in Visual Arts and German Language. I’m passionate about photography, media, new technologies and the opportunities they bring to each student. My goal at…

Simona Fridrišková

I love mathematics, it teaches us to think about relations and connections, it develops our abstract thinking and imagination. However, the most important thing for me is to show to students that learning is fun which never ends, and that it opens unlimited opportunities.

Marielba Mas y Rubi de Torres

I have been a professor for more than 17 years at university level (Engineering and Master's Degree in Environment). The teaching caught my attention at the age of 9 years when my Math teacher motivated me to help a kid with problems in her studies. Even at that age I felt the same emotion I still…

Tom Rett

In sports as well as in my entire life, I love challenges. The aims of these challenges are not hidden in winning and quickly done work but in choosing the right path, not always easy to take, leading to  the finish. After the years of various job experiences, I settled down in the school, and…

Petra Dinkovová

From the moment I first stepped onto the 1st International School of Ostrava grounds, I knew it was the right place for me. It has everything one could wish for – a pleasant, inspirational environment; kind, welcoming staff; thoughtful and talented students. After ten years spent abroad, I was a…

Andrea Mindeková

VHS tapes about dinosaurs, Once Upon a Time… Life, documentaries narrated by David Attenborough and countless books written by Richard Dawkins. This is how my affection for science began and still continues. I have seen all the four corners of the world and for two years now I have been trying to…

Since I was little, I like to plan everything in advance. And that is why I’ve chosen my job. When I was studying at elementary school, I was fascinated with my teacher who devoted a lot of time to both her job and pupils. During my studies, I found myself thinking about different kinds of…
