Master of Arts in Teaching English and German (and Translation Studies), Lipetsk State Pedagogical University, Russia

It’s my fourth summer at Middlebury, and each year I look forward to meeting new students, working with colleagues, and collecting unforgettable memories to reminisce about until the next summer.

I am currently starting a PhD program in Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Toronto.  In 2015-2016, I taught introductory, intermediate and advanced Russian courses at the University of Calgary, Canada.  In 2013, I graduated from the University of Alberta with a degree of Master of Arts in Slavic Languages and Literatures and Translation.  I also hold a degree in Teaching English and German and Translation Studies from Lipetsk State Pedagogical University.  In 2009-2010, as a Fulbright scholar, I served as a main instructor at the University of Montana.

When not teaching, I love being outside hiking, cycling, and jogging; I love dancing, reading, and long conversations over coffee and chocolate.
