Yelena Boyarova I graduated from Tartu University with degree in Russian and Slavic Philology. My specialisation is “Russian Language and Literature”. Even now I keep thinking about all my teachers and professors with love and great appreciation. I always wanted to share my knowledge with children. My dream has come true – It has been more than 10 years since I have been teaching children the Russian language – the language that is dear and precious to me... Describe yourself in 3 words: Optimist, optimist, and Optimist! My Hobbies: I love to read, sing, and dance. I also love to go to the theatre and visit museums The phrase I like: “Smile, gentlemen, smile!” (From a Russian movie “That Munchausen”) What makes me happy: What makes me happy: My family (including my dog), a chance to do my favourite things, children’s accomplishments, sun in the morning and even rain after lunch!! The list is endless!
