Miss Anna Ptak
Directress/ Montessori Teacher
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself and what you can expect from me as your child’s Early Years Educator. For those of you who may not yet know me, I have been teaching now for ten plus years, let’s say, and still don’t wish to graduate from preschool, where I enjoy the challenges and special moments with my students and their families each day! My background in education involves a Bachelor’s degree in Special Needs Education and a Master’s Degree in Social Work as well as Diploma in Montessori Method. I continue to enjoy the challenge at the preschool level and the level of enthusiasm and support from families at this level. While in Malahide, I have met many wonderful and supportive families as well as dedicated and special colleagues. I am looking forward to continuing this positive experience with you and your child.
I am pleased to be working alongside Kim who is trained as a Montessori teacher in Portobello Institute. She has enjoyed working at the preschool level for many years and is extremely dedicated to our Montessori and emergent interests program.
