From an early age, Barbora took care of people with special needs. She participated in the establishment of the Smiling Crocodile Kindergarten and Primary School for children with severe combined disabilities, where she still works as a volunteer. After maternity leave, she turned her attention to teaching children in the first and second grades of elementary school. In recent years, she has been most pleased accompanying first-graders through the initial steps of their education.
