Teaching experience: The 2013-2014 school year is my second year of teaching.
Education: I graduated from the Melitopol State Pedagogical University in 1999. I currently hold a California Teaching Credential that authorizes me to teach Russian and Ukrainian languages.
Hobbies / Interests outside of school: I love reading, gardening, playing guitar, and singing together with my family. I have 4 children: two are in high school while the other two attend an elementary school.
Educational Philosophy: For humans, our language is a method of socializing and, therefore, is a very important subject for the students to master. As a result, in my teaching, I value and encourage the moral and emotional development of my students. Furthermore, I develop the curriculum with a big emphasis on cultural values and teach my students to respect those around them. Also, Russian language is in huge demand in the business field of the Sacramento area as well as worldwide. Therefore, I am dedicated to give my best for my students' success while preparing them for college and /or future career.
