Irena gladly accepted the offer because she has an immense and genuine interest in the project. According to Irene, Ukrainian society needs renewal, a new wave, and the hope is that our children and youth will pave the way for tomorrow. She noticed that the methodology used by Novopecherska schoolteachers, is very similar that used in Canadian schools, and the philosophy of the school is consistent with her own. For Irene, the individual approach is of utmost importance - focusing on the student learning process, giving each the freedom to choose and realize the potential opportunities available to them. Cooperation is paramaount also as we all achieve more through the unity of students, teachers, parents and partners. Irena works with our team of teachers to achieve a common goal.
