Hey there! Welcome parents and students to our AWESOME 5th grade class! I am so excited to be your teacher this year, and look forward to a whole lot of fun and adventure in the classroom. A little about me, my name is Lidiya (pronounced Lydia) and I have a Masters in Special and General Education grades 1-6. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY (yes I say DAWG instead of dog and CAWfee instead of coffee). I am married for 10 years now and have 3 lovely kiddos (2 of which are just around the same age as our 5th graders) I come from a family of immigrants and am fluent in English, Russian and Ukrainian! I attended highschool at Fiorella H. LaGuardia school of the arts and performing arts in NYC and love bringing the creative arts into the classroom! Growing up in a culturally diverse environment has given me the tools to create a truly unique classroom! Get ready for a fun, interesting, and engaging year!
