Pavel Novák, Head, American Academy in Brno

A native of Moravia, Mr. Novák received his master’s degree in English and German Philology at Palacký University Olomouc in 1999. For the next seventeen years he worked in secondary schools in Brno teaching World History, as well as the English and German Languages. He never liked old-fashioned teaching methods, and instead always sought new ways. As a result, he designed and presented several teacher development workshops. He also participated in international secondary school projects with students and teachers from Austria, Germany, France and Italy. His need to learn from more experienced and progressive colleagues brought him eventually to South Kent, an independent boarding school in Connecticut, where he worked as a Current Political Issues teacher and an instructor of Soft Skills and Leadership Development Programs.
