Caleigh Furlong – director of Elementary School and coordinator of the English program
My name is Caleigh and I come from the town of Benicia, a suburb of San Francisco, California. I graduated from California State University, Chico majoring in Liberal Studies and received my teaching certificate through Mills College in Oakland, California. I lived in several different places in the US, but California has always been my home. I worked for 13 years as a public school teacher in elementary schools, middle schools and high schools, and specifically as an English teacher in California, Kansas, and Oklahoma. I have also taught English to preschool and primary school aged children in a private English academy near Seoul, South Korea. Teaching is part of my DNA. My parents were also teachers. I love the interaction with students and my favorite moment is that “light bulb” magic moment when the student begins to understand a new concept. When I’m not teaching, I like to cook, to travel and to share new adventures with friends. I am very excited to work for the International Trilingual School of Warsaw and Ecole Antoine de Saint-Exupery as Director, Curriculum Coordinator and Developer and teacher for the primary school. I enjoy living in Warsaw and exploring the area and I look forward to continuing to teach children and learn from the children at our school.

Dominique Jibert – coordinator of the French program
My name is Dominique Jibert. I am French. I was born in the last century and I am a citizen of today. I love to travel and be confronted with the difference while keeping the link with my old and new family.
I have taught for over 10 years in French schools abroad. As I like to learn new languages and discover new cultures, I hope to enrich my teaching practice through these teaching.
I am convinced that a school that helps students become independent (they know to organize and learn to think for themselves) is a school that has a proper purpose. This can be achieved through a rigorous learning of basic knowledge (mental calculation, conjugation …) along with a project teaching.
I enjoy working within a team of teachers with multiple backgrounds.
Agnieszka Grosicka – coordinator of the Polish program
My name is Agnieszka, I grew up in a forest house on the border between the regions of Mazowsze and Świętokrzyskie and I love nature. As a little girl I could explore the world around me as much as I wanted. My experience has taught me that most children learn when they have the opportunity to explore. This leads to creativity.
My adventure with the kids started early. When I was 9, I always played with the neighbors’ children. Once I had to decide on the choice of university I knew immediately that I wanted to work at the school. I am a graduate teacher of primary and preschool education and education management. I have experience in working with children of preschool and school age. I also organize a Sunday school for youth.
Theater is my passion. With friends, we present performances in elderly residences, oncology hospitals or simply organizing street theater.
My joy and privilege is to teach the younger generation.
My name is Agata. I am a student of applied linguistics of the French language at the University of Warsaw. I am a graduate student of the teaching department of French and English.
