I am from Uzbekistan, a country in central Asia. Before coming to America I worked for nine years as an elementary school teacher. I instructed students on a variety of subjects, such as reading, communication, mathematics, science, art, social studies, music, and physical education. In 2013 I came to marry my husband, a professor at UWL. My family now includes two daughters (7 and 4) and a cat. I love to do crafts with my students and create a happy positive atmosphere. I am excited to share my talents at Congregational Preschool.
