Being a versatile educator, I have had the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from various backgrounds and all facets of society. As a result, I am a compassionate teacher, who remains sensitive to students' unique needs, employs effective listening, provides individual support, integrates multicultural teaching units, and offers positive encouragement and reinforcement to keep students focused and motivated.

One of the most effective ways that I assist students is by developing and presenting comprehensible and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students via visual, audio, tactile, and kinesthetic methods. My goal is to foster and maintain an open, honest, communicative and supportive classroom, in which each student feels safe, secure, special and appropriately challenged.

MA in South-Ukrainian University, English-German department, graduated in 1999.
