 I received my M.S. in German language and education from the Tavricheskiy National University,  in 1985. I then worked as an educator for 30 years, teaching German at middle, high school, and college levels. Apart from teaching, I also worked as a private tutor and an interpreter for the Lingua Club language company. I immigrated to the U.S. in 2002, confirmed my education, and received "highly qualified" status (HQS). I taught German I and II at Blount High School for 2 years before coming to Baker. I am married and have a son - Nikolai. He graduated from  the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I am very proud of him! Every summer my son and I like to  travel . I love teaching, reading, languages, traveling, music, and watching movies.
