Hi! I am a high school Russian teacher in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with a master's in Russian language and literature. I am also a cross country and track and field coach. From 1993 to 1998, I worked in Vologda, Russia. My most recent publications include "The Sun Rises on the Horn of Africa" (Running Times) and "Mathematics 6: An Award-Winning Textbook from Russia" (Mathematics 6). I am available for Russian to English translating, as well as proof reading in English. In addition to sports, my specialties include art, literature, tourism, and Africa (I lived in Eritrea for several years and traveled extensively in the region).
