Hailing from the eastern shore of Maryland, Chris is a mixture of rōnin and troubadour, wandering the world and earning his keep via English-teaching and writing/editing. Fresh off a five-year spell in Jordan, where he taught with the Peace Corps and operated a freelance editing business (and adopted a rescue dog, who is adjusting quite nicely!), Chris landed in Prague in October 2013, eager-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready for Slavic adventure. He is currently wondering how he can copyright the term “language rōnin”.
Nica attended Wesleyan University in Connecticut. She studied psychology, including coursework in psycholinguistics, and taught English in Italy over the summer. Wanderlust drew her to Prague in 2012. Immediately, she fell in love with the culture, architecture, and beer of Prague. You will see a lot of Nica at our School; she is the Orientation Coordinator, a trainer, an observer, and a visa assistant. She teaches private English lessons on the side as well. Nica has also worked as a tour guide in Prague, and she is passionate and knowledgeable about the city, its history, and its quirky nightlife. She’s excited to welcome you to the Golden City and help you have an amazing experience. But be warned! You may find yourself loving this city so much, you’ll never want to leave–as Kafka said, “Prague never lets you go… this dear little mother has sharp claws.”
When not teaching, Nica enjoys finding all the castles, breweries, and beautiful hikes the Czech Republic has to offer. If you have any questions about the orientation program or about the visa process, please contact Nica at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is also happy to help with any questions about preparing to live abroad and Prague itself.
Lizza was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana and at a young age moved to the great city of Lexington, Kentucky; home of the best collegiate basketball program (The Kentucky Wildcats), blue grass, and Kentucky bourbon. She has a degree in Psychology and a minor in Sociology from Georgetown College, but has always had an interest in teaching. Here in Prague, she teaches both kids and adults and strives to make learning English engaging for all of her students.
Lizza works as an observer on the course which means she will observe you teaching each week and will then provide constructive feedback. When Lizza’s not teaching, she enjoys meeting new people, traveling as much as possible, and playing or watching any sport. She also enjoys the advantages of living abroad through exploring the magical city that is Prague.
P.S. In case you were wondering, the answer is yes, Lizza is related to two Jonas brothers.
