About the lesson
I possess a true passion for teaching, extraordinary knowledge of the subject taught, ability to manage a classroom, ability to control, understand and help with social and emotional problems of students.
I always try to be a role model to all students. I approach and resolve problems depending on an individual situation. I am creative, hard-working (preparing lesson plans on a daily basis). What makes me special as a teacher? I am able to differentiate instruction according to personal needs of each and every student. I am willing to cooperate with parents/guardians.I am available after school hours to run extracurricular activities (clubs, sport events, etc.)

I graduated from Jagiellonian University (Summa cum Laude), Krakow, Poland and Pushkin’s Institute of Foreign Languages, Moscow, Russia with MA in the field of Russian Language and Literature. Later, I had an opportunity to attend Kean University, from which I obtained four teaching certificates in the following areas: ESL, Bilingual/Bicultural Education, Elementary Education, and Foreign Language.
I taught Polish Bilingual Program at one of the elementary schools in Linden, NJ from 1991-1996. I also taught ESL - Math Strategies, ESL - Communication Strategies, ESL, and Russian Language at Linden High School, Linden NJ since 1996 till June 2020. I am a founder and an advisor of the Polish Club and SLAVA - the Russian National Honor Society - both at Linden High School (1996-present).
I initiated a variety of extracurricular academic activities, such as:
• An annual participation in the NJ Contest of Spoken Russian since 1996 - present (as a lead teacher and a judge).
• An annual participation in the National Russian Essay Contest.
I also worked in a capacity of a co-chairperson (one year with Paavo Husen) and a judge of the National Russian Essay Contest (2005-present).
I spent the summer of 2008 working as a Resident Director of the Golden Ring Program in Vladimir, Russia.
During the summer of 2012 I participated in the STARTALK/Critical Languages Program in Glastonbury, CT.
I am an active member of several professional organizations: FLENJ, NJTESOL-BE, ACTR. I am fluent in English, Polish, and Russian. I also studied classical languages (Latin and Greek). My special interests and areas of expertise include word etymology, comparative and historical linguistics, and foreign language acquisition.
