Goodbye, Good dinosaur Nothing isn't all that's about to disappear. Ms Kulová, our beloved, hard-working EAL teacher is about to vanish from our hallways as well, as she moves her life in a different direction. She has taken the EAL Department from a rather neglected faction of the English Department to a full-fledged, well-functioning department of its own, with its own budget and everything. She built it from pretty much nothing, and replacing her will be a challenge for even the most seasoned of veterans in this service. Ms Kulová! We'll miss you more than Nothing! How did you get this gig? How long have you been at this school? It is rather a long story. To make it short: after completing my degree at university, I was looking for a job. I met Nitzan Hollander and he told me his school was looking for an EAL Coordinator. I sent my CV, met Brett and luckily got the job. 5 years, 3 months and 16 days. Why are you leaving? Well, there is not a single reason, but generally speaking I am leaving for personal and family issues. I feel the need to take new challenges and be useful in other places as well. What's your favorite dinosaur? That one from the Good Dinosaur cartoon. What's one place on Earth you hope to see before you're too old or trapped to see it? The Great Wall of China Are there any fond memories you'd like to share, or people you'd particularly like to say something to? I have thousands of memories that fill my heart with joy. Maybe I was lucky, but basically all the students I have ever taught here were kind and nice beings with a strong feeling of empathy. Anytime I felt upset, though trying my best to hide it from them, they somehow felt it and cheered me up and we carelessly laughed together. So I would like to say a big thank you to all my students wherever they are. If you had to do it again, would you? If you were a cultural artifact, which cultural artifact would you be? I am not sure what you exactly mean by ‘IT’. But, yes, there have been several hard decisions to make and If I had to make them again, I would make exactly the same ones. A surprise pop up toy in a music box. How would you characterize your time here at ISO/TOIS? First of all, it is hard to believe it has been five years already. I remember coming here the very first day. To summarize my time at school, I would say the first two years were the hardest for me. It took me a lot of time and energy to settle down, get used to a new system of education and learn how to successfully cooperate with students of completely different cultures. On the other hand, I have always enjoyed spending time with children/young people, I have learned from them lot and I am very grateful for this experience.
