I have always loved teaching a foreign language. Back in Latvia , I taught Latvian to the U.S. Peace Corps volunteers for a couple of years. I also taught military English (EFSP) to Latvian, Russian, Estonian and Lithuanian soldiers for the NATO project Baltic Battallion, which I absolutely loved.
After these teaching experiences, I started to look into international teaching programs. I won a Fulbright Scholarship for teachers in 1999 and I came to the U.S. to teach Russian and Multicultural Enrichment in a small rural school in Greentown, Indiana. I made the curriculum and found a big support from the local community. I have always been excited about teaching. Currently I am a job coach for Arlington ISD and look forward to teaching something exciting in near future!
I graduated from Institute of Children's Literature in Redding, Colorado in 2006. My ultimate goal is to publish a book for teenagers and parents.
