    I arrived in Canada as an immigrant 25 years ago. I also endured many challenges and roadblocks throughout my time in Canada so I relate with the struggles that families may encounter while transitioning to a new country. I can help provide you with information regarding education systems. I have resources for afterschool programs, as well as the ability to connect your children to various tutoring programs. We host information sessions that focus on different topics for children and adolescents that occur monthly or quarterly. If you require assistance with opening an account in PowerSchool or contacting the school regarding your children I can act as your main point of contact.

    When you go to bed and still thinking about whether to change one activity to another, when you rejoice at the small achievement of your student and immediately plan the next lesson in your imagination, you realize that you love this work. I worked as a teacher in Ukraine and have possibility to work with children with CBFY. I can help with planning activities for summer camp or other after school programs. It is important to be helpful to both parents and children. That’s why I am here with CBFY.
