Why it is worth studying at SE
“I didn’t know the methods I could use as a teacher, I didn’t know how to talk with a class and at the same time maintain discipline. I also lacked educational competence. Now I am learning all these at the School of Education,” says Marlena Jaśkiewicz, who graduated from Bioengineering Faculty at Warsaw University of Technology, and now is studying math path at SE.
