Our Governing Body
Mrs T Dobrowolski
I have been very fortunate to work as a teacher in Tany’s Dell school for almost ten years and during that time I have been the science coordinator, art coordinator and a Key Stage leader as well as a teacher for Year 4, 5 and 6. I retired after over thirty-six years of service and can honestly say that of the seven schools I have worked in, Tany’s Dell has been the best and the loveliest one. The staff are brilliant – supportive, hard-working, creative, fun and above all, caring. The children are delightful, responsive and polite - they make every day a pleasure to go to work for. There is a true family feel to Tany’s Dell and when I retired I wanted to continue to support the school. Retiring was very hard for me. However, by being a curriculum governor, I still have a sense of belonging and when I pop into school – for whatever reason – I am welcomed like I had never left.

I joined Tany’s Dell as its new Deputy Head in September 2001. Over twenty years later, I am still here! Tany’s Dell is just the best place to come and work. The sense of family, friendship and support here is second to none. We all reach for the stars – children and staff – every day and I love being a part of that. I see my role as ensuring that Tany’s Dell continues to work its magic on all of our children and that they are given every opportunity to try their very best, celebrate their achievements, shine their talents and be proud of themselves.

Hello! My name is Katerina and my association with Tany's Dell began when my eldest daughter started in Reception 9 years ago. Since then, my second child has journeyed onto year 7 this year and my middle child (Year 4) still attends this wonderful school. So, when a position arose for Parent Governor in 2021, I knew I wanted to apply.
I hope to give something back to this brilliant school where my children have all been so happy. We had a surprise fourth child arrive last December, so my journey with Tany's Dell will long continue! I have always had a strong passion for education and have always loved working with children and young people. I have an educational background working in 4 different primary schools, Stagecoach Drama and for Enfield Council as a Senior Playleader delivering educational, fun and exciting play schemes and summer camps whilst studying for my degree in Education Studies and Childhood Studies. I believe in the best possible education for all our children, for all staff to be recognized for their commitment, love and dedication, and the importance of a safe and happy environment where our children can be nurtured, learn and grow. I feel Tany's Dell offers this and always thrives to deliver the highest possible standards for their pupils, staff and whole school community. One of the many wonderful qualities Tany's Dell has to offer is a family ethos. This is so important to have in any school, where it's pupils, parents and staff feel happy, safe and secure. Where their education, care and safety are of the utmost importance. In my new role I want to help make a difference to our brilliant school, be a supportive voice for parents and continue to raise our school to become an outstanding provision for all our children.
In my spare time I love to run. I believe in a healthy mindset and mental wellbeing. I have a positive approach to life and would say I have lots of energy, am fun, loving and caring. I love dancing, baking, spending time with my family and friends, helping people and generally love to make sure everyone is happy and well supported.
I am looking forward to the challenges ahead of me and supporting the school community, staff and my fellow governors, in achieving a rich education and standards for all our children.
