Why did you become a teacher?

I grew up in a troubled family and dreamed of becoming a teacher. My example proves that children from such families have a chance, have a future.


I believe that the main task of a primary school teacher is to teach children to think critically and analyze information. That’s why I developed a methodology according to which lessons are mini-studies in different subjects.

I am also implementing an integrated “Neighborhood Culture” course to raise children in universal values and with a high level of tolerance. I took part in the organization of the first Family Festival in Uzhgorod.

Rule of life

The teacher does not teach, educate or develop, but cooperates with students, learns and self-improves with them.
