My name is Elaine Kukin and I would like to welcome your child to the 2nd grade Russian Immersion Class. This is my 9th year of teaching at Baltimore International Academy.
I am originally from Ukraine, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and my Master’s of Education in Elementary Education. I taught all subjects (in Russian) at Ukrainian Public Schools, for grades 1-4.
Previously, I also taught Math and Language, Geography and History. I am looking forward to getting to know better both you and your children, this year. Second and Third Grade students will achieve much this year in terms of academic growth, greater self-confidence, and improved social skills. Good communication between parent, teacher, and student is very important for your child’s academic growth.
I do encourage a great deal of independent reading for pleasure with my second/third grade students. Developing a love of reading is so important to a child’s educational future.
Also note that if you ever have any comments, questions or concerns, I am available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment please) each day before and after school. To schedule a meeting, you may contact me via my Baltimore City e-mail at email@example.com or use my phone number (410)426-3650 Ext 122.
I am excited about working with your child. I welcome questions or comments and am looking forward to a wonderful, rewarding year!
