Gwen Wiess

english teacher

Hello! My name is Gwen and I’m the English teacher at Smarties. I’m from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States and have been in Prague since September of 2017. Before coming to Prague to teach I earned a degree in Visual Studies and Philosophy from Temple University and was working as a nanny and as a waitress in a comedy club. I chose to move abroad and teach English out of a wish to teach and spend time with children as well as a desire for adventure and travel. When I’m not teaching English I’m most likely trying to figure out how and where to travel next, exploring Prague, reading, drawing, or watching a movie or TV show. I’ve enjoyed my time at Smarties very much and look forward to getting to know your children as well as helping them improve their English skills.
