Eva Bartha

Kindergarten Teacher and Director – Kookaburra group

Hi,

My name is Eva and I am one of the kindergarten teachers and the director here, at Yarraman Oaks Primary Kindergarten.

I started working at this kindergarten in 2008. I choose this kindergarten because I leave locally, and I know this community. I am passionate about teaching young children, and I highly value the vibrancy of the cultures we all bring with us from home. As a multilingual person myself, I am an advocate of preserving and teaching the children their mother tongue and their ancestor’s culture.

I was born in Romania, and I am an ethnic Hungarian. With my husband, we have three adult daughters, and we are actively involved in the Hungarian community life in Melbourne. I taught Hungarian language at Victorian School of Languages for 25 years.
