About Ms. Dostalova


I have been teaching for almost 9 years now. I taught at HPA from 2013 - 2017 and then came back in 2019. I love the Hyde Park community, hence my return. I enjoy teaching English, reading, and writing. I am always looking forward to learning from my students and their expertise. Even though this year is different, I am excited to meet all of you and guide you through this school year. I will try my best every day during this pandemic and make sure I am available for you and help with whatever you need.

One year ago, I became a mom to twins, Max and Stella. Stella was born with a congenital heart defect and has already had two open heart surgeries. They turned one year old on July 31, 2020 and are thriving. Our household is filled with love and laughter as we navigate through parenthood, a pandemic, twins, and CHD. We cannot wait until the pandemic and quarantine life is over, so we can enjoy life a little more and support our favorite HPA activities and sports. On my free time, I practice yoga and meditation, ask me about it and I can teach you how to breathe and let go of much anxiety.

Note: I am available via email, if you have any questions I can answer, please let me know. I hope we have a wonderful 2020 - 2021 school year.
