Our teachers come from all over the world and have found a family here at Little Star. They are all mother-tongue or bilingual English speakers with a great deal of experience and diplomas in Early Education.
We invest in continuous staff training through courses linked to Reggio Emilia, Montessori and the best of Italian education.
We believe in the importance of ethical values. Little Star teachers are, above all, good human beings and have been selected primarily for their natural embodiment of Little Star's Code of Ethics.
I believe in a world where everyone can experience the universal ethical values linked to the UN Human Rights. My family’s roots are closely linked to values and enterprise. In over 20 years of working with and for children, I have built schools and created an educational programme that develops children’s creativity and self-esteem and a sense of being active players in achieving their dreams. I am unique because I observe and listen. I believe in humanity.
I am kind, determined and reserved.

I believe music has the power to change the world and it starts with education. I created my skills by studying for many years. I've studied music at New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts and education at Harvard University. I've traveled around the world performing music professionally for the last decade and I've taught in Europe, Central America, and the United States. I have also been mentored by many amazing musicians such as Jason Moran, Donald Harrison, and Christian Scott. . What makes me unique is that in addition to my passion for music I have a passion for education and I’ve studied both subjects at a high level. I also believe I have a unique cultural experience from living in New Orleans, Boston, and New York.
I am curious, helpful and nice.

I strongly believe that children represent hope for a better world. This is why I am here at Little Star! Being a mother has helped me understand that education is fundamental in forming a generation that will take charge of their lives and view the world around them with compassion and a strong sense of responsibility.

I am magical, enchanting and sparkly.
The Land of Stardust
I always took care of my little brother and sister while I was growing up and my love for children continued to grow from there.

I started dancing at the age of 3 and since then it became my recipe for a happy life! Dance taught me everything, from the ability to dream, the harmony of the movement, through discipline and precision all the way to team-work! After studying 9 years in National Ballet Academy in Gdansk, I graduated in Ballet Pedagogy at F.Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. I’ve worked as a dance teacher since 2014 in London, Warsaw, Poznan, Szczecin and now - Rome. I had amazing opportunities to teach children from different backgrounds, levels of practice, children with special needs and adults. I believe dance is for everyone. There is nothing else I appreciate more than seeing my students making progress and having fun at classes.

The Land of Silliness

First and foremost, the teacher must strive to be worthy of the trust, love and attention of the child. For us, a teacher is above all a good human being, someone who respects human rights when interacting not only with the children but also with the adults involved. A person who tries to be a good example of who they truly are, because children feel that spirit.
Thanks to their values, at Little Star, everyone, all educators and members of staff, are simply themselves. We are unique. A Little Star teacher recognises her ethical values and knows how to communicate them.
This is the secret of a wonderfully winning teacher. To be! Because the truth makes our eyes shine! Because truth is simple and direct, just like a child.
We try to preserve this treasure, working with kindness and discretion. We like to see critical, active and constructive people around us.
Those who enter our world are taken on an adventure of practical science that is never theory-based and boring. Teachers and children alike!
