Why did you become a teacher?

I continued the family tradition: my grandmother and mother are teachers.


I created the media product “Linguistic Games” and teach the Ukrainian language, using animation. I founded the “Media Culture” group, where we work with children on making animated films. In 2015, my students took part in writing a director’s plan and shooting an animation for Svitlana Tarabarova’s song “I want to live without war.” I teach media literacy to my students, their parents and colleagues.

Rule of life

My methods are not extraordinary, I do not use anything that is not available. All you need is the desire to work, inspiration and a cheerful mood ― the result will not take long.
