Why did you become a teacher?

When the subject of Correctional Education appeared in my school, I thought about the fact that there are children who cannot see, walk, talk, hear or understand what they are being told. It was then that I decided to work with children with complex developmental disabilities. My dream is to make such children “visible” to society.


Since 2009 I have been engaged in social and psychological rehabilitation of children with special needs. I have created programmes for the development of musical and rhythmic abilities, vocational guidance, the development of acting skills for young people with disabilities and the programme for the first in Ukraine Summer City Inclusive Day Camp SPACE CAMP.

Rule of life

In a child, first of all, I see a child, and only then their disability.
