I am a Russian American. I came to the U.S. on Feb. 6, 2005 and became an American citizen on Oct. 24, 2018.

I graduated from Omsk State Pedagogical University in Omsk, Russia, with Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in English and German. In Alabama my education was confirmed and I was given a Highly Qualified Status. I have been teaching at Murphy since Jan. 2007. First year and a half I taught ESL. Russian was one of my classes in the school year 2018-19 which I really enjoyed teaching. Unfortunately, there's no room in my schedule for any more Russian classes.

This is my 14th year teaching German. I taught all levels of German I-V for 13 years. This year I teach German I Hr. and German II Hr.

I knew at a young age that teaching was my passion and I really loved English and later German languages. So I decided to become a foreign language teacher!

I am a devoted wife to my wonderful husband, Kenneth, of 16 years. We have three cats that bring us lots of joy! My husband and I are huge Alabama Crimson Tide fans! Roll Tide! In addition, I love traveling, photography, learning new languages, cooking, outdoors, reading, and other things. I am proud to be a part of Murphy HS, school of excellent traditions and wonderful staff! Go Panthers!!
