Polina dreams to work as a teacher

    Polina Prudnikova is 22 years old. She was born and lived in Liozna District. Now she lives in Vitebsk working as a barista. She has a mother and three younger sisters. When Polina was 12, her dad died in a car accident. As soon as she had finished studying in school, she started working in order to help her mum. Polina studied distantly at the University of Education at the Belorussian philology faculty. Now she dreams of returning to teaching in school.

    Polina:

    My very best coffee is cappuccino with nut syrup in it. Nut syrup is perfectly combined with coffee and makes it more delicate.

    My name is Polina Prudnikova, I am 22 years old. I was born and lived in Liozna District. Now I live in Vitebsk and work as a barista.

    On my days off, I commonly visit my mum. I have got three sisters. When we all are gathered, we prefer cooking pies. It makes us united, brings us together. However, each of us is different and sometimes we have some arguments.

    I was 12 when our dad died in a car accident driving from work. Our mum raised the four of us alone. I was the eldest among the children. As soon as I had finished studying in school, I started working in order to help my mum. My first job was not official, I worked as a carer, looking after an old woman.

    I studied distantly at the University of Education at the Belorussian philology faculty.

    The one who influenced me to choose a career in teaching was my Belorussian language teacher.

    When I was in the fifth grade, a new teacher was employed, the teacher who would then become our class teacher. She tought the Belorussian language. I liked it so much, I wanted to do alike so much. And that is when the strong desire to go study for being the Belorussian language teacher appeared. All in all, I have made my dream come true.

    I do like working as a barista, but I do not think this job is what I would like to be engaged in all my life. I think I will return to teaching and be working as the Belorussian language teacher. I would like to thrive as a teacher and be treated respectfully by the students, enjoying the process of teaching.
