What is your teaching superpower?

My teaching superpower is to inspire my students to new achievements. I teach them not to be afraid to step out of their comfort zone and to believe in themselves and their strengths.

21st Century Teacher: Who are they in a nutshell?

Positive, professional, understanding.

What phrase of your students gives you wings?

“When will we start working on a new project? Let’s try something new!”

Top skills you have acquired during distance learning.

My top skill is the ability to predict. A month before the quarantine, I started mastering distance learning services and I was the first in Ukraine to hold a webinar for teachers, during which I told them how to plan their work during the pandemic.

Your professional dream.

My dream is to create a psychological care center for students and their parents. In it, they could get professional advice from a psychologist, learn to avoid conflicts, and develop their positive qualities.
