I have lived in Kyrgyzstan for eight years during these eight years I have experienced many amazing things.  I enjoy traveling, and this summer I spent traveling and exploring several important landmarks here in Kyrgyzstan, such as: Son-Kul, Dead Sea, Fairy Tale Cannon, and Sary-Chelek.  I also enjoy learning about Kyrgyz culture and spending time studying and watching movies about Kyrgyzstan.  I my heart I will always be a Kygyz girl!

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child(ren) this school year.  I believe that education is a triangle and to make education work all sides need to work together.  This triangle consists of the student, parent(s), and teacher(s).  If this triangle is working together we will have a very successful year.  Thus, please feel free to drop me an email and communicate any needs or concerns you may have!  I look forward to having a wonderful school year and watching each of our children grow in Preschool.
