About Me:

Hi I’m Irena. I am from a small town in Croatia and I decided to moved to London because it is such an exciting city! Whilst studying for my Masters degree I realised that becoming an educator and working with children was my true calling. Therefore, after my studies I spent a few years working as a teacher and I am now so excited to continue my journey as part of the Monkey Puzzle family. I love being a part of a child’s education and development because I get a sense of accomplishment when I see them developing and growing with my support. I never stop learning and I always try to develop my skills further so I can encourage children to reach their full potential. I’m looking forward to working with the team to support the Monkey Puzzle Highbury children to flourish and grow.

I love to travel and discover new places and learn about their culture. I think travelling is a great way to build your character and understanding about others. I also enjoy reading in my spare time. One of my favourite way to stay active is through riding my bike and walking and exploring new parts of London.
