Students and teachers.
From the interview with Ms Savchenko eight years ago:
1) Why have you chosen the profession of a teacher?
I have always wanted to be a teacher. First I wanted to teach History, then I fell in love with my teacher Rosa Yakivna and decided to learn English. I adore my job greatly.
2) What is your experience of work in school?
I've been working at school for 30 years. And 16 years in the Gymnasium.
3) What do You feel to your pupils?
My pupils have always been not only my pupils for me. They are my own children. I remember the time when they came to my study being 5 formers. Most of them knew English not very well. But they loved English. I tried to do my best to make them study it well. I always prepare crosswords, puzzles or other interesting tasks for them. And they always do well. I'm proud of my pupils.
4) Is it difficult to check our copybooks?
Checking your copybooks? It's not very difficult, but checking workbooks is mostly boring. We do really all exercises in class. But your projects are more interesting. You express your ideas, thoughts. You draw pictures. Checking your projects takes much time, but you should write to learn, to improve your writing skills and I have to check your writing.
5) Would you like to change your profession?
I would never like to change my job. It's the best profession in the world - to teach children to be cleaver, highly skilled people.
6) Have you got favourite pupils? Do you like children?
To tell you the truth, I love all my pupils. I don't want to change any pupil in my group.
7 )Do you want to have own class?
To have own class? Not very much. Sometimes pupils do smth in a wrong way: they don't like wearing school uniform, taking the plates and glasses from tables in the school canteen. And the teacher is punished for all these things. Why? Now nobody comes to me and says that "my" pupils have come to school without uniforms.
