Experience

After graduating from the university, Pavla taught history, Czech language and literature at the grammar school and several secondary vocational schools in Třebíč, and for many years she worked as the chair of the subject committee. She was, among other things, a certified assessor of Czech language exams for foreigners and a central assessor of graduation written works in Czech language and literature. She was also involved in the individual education of exceptionally gifted pupils, in which she also used her personal experience with the French secondary education system. She also got to know the Czech school system from another side, for five years she worked as a school inspector in the Central Bohemia Inspectorate of the Czech School Inspectorate. In 2023, she decided to go back in front of the blackboard – this time at Open Gate.

Hobbies

Pavla reads everything she can get her hands on, listens to the stories and opinions of others, and is also the chronicler of one district of Prague. She is interested in modern history, enjoys culture and travelling. She has been travelling around the Czech Republic and Europe, most recently in France, under the motto "The journey is the destination". Her great inspiration and challenge are the members of her extended family, thanks to whom she is honing her sense of humour and views not only on Star Wars but also on the Hundred Years War.
