I\'m very glad to introduce myself to you. My name\'s Elena, 23, and I\'m from a small but a very nice and friendly Russian city of Barnaul in Siberia. Currently I\'m an English teacher in one of the local linguistic schools, working with kids from the age of 8 to 12, and teaching them English. I was born in Kazakhstan, my mother\'s native land, but I grew up and lived my whole life in Russia with my mum and younger sister who is 12 already. My biggest dream is to go to Canada and work as a caregiver there. You may ask: Why Canada? Well, the answer is very simple and obvious for me - this country has a similar climate as Russia, there are not so many culture differences between Russians and Canadians, and - which means a lot to me - I just love this country, as it\'s so beautiful and very welcoming. Of course, I do not have any relatives in Canada, but I strongly believe I will find some friends when I\'m finally there, and I\'m far more than sure I\'ll make friends with my host family as well! A few words about my family: mum works in a maternity home as an obstetrician, and she loves her profession a lot; as for my younger sister Victoria, she is 12 years old and she is in her 6th year at school. We\'re very good friends with my sister, I\'ve been helping mum bring her up since she was born, so I can say I know how to bring up a child since the early days of it. Victoria goes in for dancing as I myself used to before, from time to time we do English homework together and we do really well. Our family is very friendly, every day we tell each other different stories that happened, and we share news with one another. I have never thought I will ever be working with children, even when I entered a Pedagogical Academy. Of course it\'s all because I didn\'t have enough experience at that time yet and didn\'t know I would put up with kids so well. But the realization came to me when I was having my school practice at University, teaching school children English and German and organizing extra classes with them - I understood for sure that this is my occupation and this is what I want to do in my life! We were doing so well with kids, they talked to me and shared news not as if I were their teacher, but just as with their good friend! And still they did all the things and home tasks that I gave them, and the discipline during our lessons was perfect. I think the reason is that I\'m myself a child somewhere deep in my heart and I know what kids need and what they feel in this or that situation. At the Academy we went through lots of subjects including pedagogic and psychology - which are, to my mind, extremely useful for me as a teacher, and of course we learned English every day, that\'s why I can say I speak English really and really fluently now. I gained lots of new skills at the Academy, and I know how to provide someone first medical care as we had several months of medical science as well. As for my hobbies and other skills, I can play the piano a little bit and sing as I used to attend music school long time ago, and I also attended many other clubs when I was younger, like hand-made, dance studios, and even some aikido club. At school I was very good at humanitarian subjects like English, history and Russian, maybe that was the reason I decided to become an English teacher. In 2013 when I still was getting my higher education I started working as a teacher in Lingua Club School, where I still successfully work and enjoy it very much. We do many interesting tasks with kids, play games, sing songs, make funny competitions and projects. I think I\'m quite an experienced teacher already, and I can\'t imagine myself without working with kids. But of course it\'d be unforgettable experience if I work with foreign children like in Canada, and I\'d like to learn more about peculiarities of what it\'s like to work in some other country. My experience does not only include working with groups of children, but also working with kids individually. I\'ve been teaching English to a girl named Arina (who used to be my neighbour) for 4 years already, since her age of 11. We meet 3-4 times weekly and do various English exercises. Arina was not really good at English once, that\'s why her mum, whom I know too, asked me to help them. Since then we\'ve been having our home English classes, and we also talk a lot and discuss stories and events that happen to Arina at school. Other than that, I teach kids individually at my work too, but I can\'t say it\'s less interesting or more difficult than with groups - sometimes it\'s even more useful for me as a teacher. I don\'t have any special expectations from Canada, I just want to work there as long as possible, learn new cultural things, learn more about the mentality and in general - learn what it\'s like to live and work there. I truly hope I can contribute a lot to any children I will be working with, as I think I have enough experience already and as I just love my profession a lot. I\'m sure I will be able to cope with house duties too, as I\'ve been doing well with housework in my home. So, in conclusion I\'d like to say that I\'m looking forward to starting my Canada trip as soon as possible, and I\'m more than sure that we will make friends with you and that I\'ll make a responsible nanny and a good caregiver for your children!
