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.

Autism

Currently I am working as a job-coach for the job program 18 PLUSS for Arlington school district. I teach job skills and social skills to autistic and MHMR young adults on a daily basis. This job is so rewarding because many of our young adults get hired part time after graduating from our program.
I am CPR certified and also am a personal attendant to one marvelous autistic teenager during weekends.

Russian

I am fluent in Russian and Latvia. I was born in Latvia, a former Soviet Union republic. We had to speak Russian at school as children.
