Anna Yashchenko, director of the Dublin Russian School
Anna is a paediatrician by her first career and an IT professional by the second.
Moved to Dublin with Google six years ago, she fell in love with the country and its people, especially with one of them 🙂
After realizing all the challenges of raising bilingual children she decided to open her own Russian school of additional education to support the language of her own child and many other children in Dublin.
Russian Gymnasium values the full immersion to the language with the live use of it in different subjects and aspects.
There are a variety of subjects taught by native Russian speakers, who are also passionate about their professions: a biologist, a math PhD, an art-historian, etc.
Facing the challenges of Covid, the school was transferred to an online model in two weeks’ time frame.
Anna will talk about the changes, techniques, successes and failures she faced during the last 4 month.
