All About Mrs. Roda
My name is Svetlana Roda. I was born in USSR/Russia and have been living in the United States for over 18 years now. I received my Master of Arts Degree in Linguistics and Education from Novosibisrk State Pedagogical University in Russia. I have also earned Master of Education degree with concentration in Elementary Education at Meredith College, Raleigh, NC.
Teaching has always been a part of my life and a field of my educational and professional growth. Upon my graduation with Master of Arts Degree in Linguistics and Education, I was teaching foreign languages at one of the public schools in Russia. As I was learning more and getting more experience, my appreciation for teaching deepened. Ever since I have stayed committed to the profession of teaching. When I moved to the United Stares, I received my certification in ESL and became an ESL teacher. My diverse and bilingual background in education allows me to reach out to English Language Learners and share with them my passion for learning and also for studying the English language in particular.
On a personal note...I am married and have two beautiful daughters. As a family we enjoy spending time outdoors: going hiking, biking or simply playing in the backyard. Some of my personal hobbies are reading, playing piano, and walking.
