Mrs. Lina Wirszyla
I was born in Siberia, Russia. I am a typical army kid who traveled a lot because my father was sent to serve the Russian Army in various locations of the country. When I was about to go to 5th grade, my family moved to eastern Europe, Belarus.
I began my career in education as a foreign language teacher (German & English languages) in 1998, in Belarus. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Linguistics from Minsk state Linguistic University, and second Bachelor's and a master's Degree in Education both from SUNY New Paltz.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, playing sports and baking with my children. I am a huge fan of Disney World characters and simply adore minions, too!
How many people can honestly say they are happy and satisfied in their career choice? I can! I'm in awe of the wonder and excitement that the children possess, and I love witnessing how every year my classroom family grows and blossoms into unique personalities.
