I grew up in Moscow, Russia. From an early age I was fascinated by different languages and cultures.

As an exchange student I came to the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA. I fell in love with the peaceful and friendly town. After graduating from Moscow State Linguistic University, I returned to UNI to work on my Master's in French.

France was the first country I visited as a child, and I was amazed by its beauty. I have been back many times to study and explore. I feel fortunate to be able to share my passion for the French culture with my students.

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, gardening and cooking. I have been to over 30 countries. My most memorable destinations are India, Mexico, Georgia (country) and Morocco.

This is my third year at Canyon High School. Prior to Canyon High School, I taught French and English as a Second Language in Moscow, Iowa and Nebraska.

I look forward to another amazing school year!!!
