Superpower: She knows how to teach as she lives, and to live as she teaches. During the lessons, Liudmyla shares her travel experiences with the students and inspires them not to sit still, but to go on adventures with courage.

21st Century Teacher: Who are they in a nutshell? With an active civic stance and a frantic drive for innovation. Liudmyla actively develops and promotes the tradition of Euro clubs in the Kharkiv oblast and participates in powerful international projects and competitions, such as “We can do more!” with the German NGO “DRA” and the “World Of 7 Billion Student Video Contest” with NGOs from the United States.

What skills do Alpha generation students need? Ability to overcome one’s fear and disorganization to succeed. Liudmyla’s students — all of them — regularly take part in the school Euroclub “Bee”, where they can develop talents in various fields: from politics to directing. Thus, in 2019 the club won the “Euroquiz Box” from the EU Delegation to Ukraine.

Professional dream: To educate young leaders who are not indifferent to the problems of education, culture, and society. Leaders who promote common European values and have a strong potential to interact with the government.

Source of inspiration: The little peacekeepers who cherish the future of the state — a detachment of young UN peacekeepers based on the Kharkiv specialized school №73 of grades I-III. Together with them, Liudmyla is transforming the Kharkiv region into a powerful European center.
