Teachers should model a lifelong love for learning and curiosity. They should be kind, compassionate, and supportive members of society.” 

Misha’s Story

Teaching Discipline


Why Math 

Math has always been my favorite subject. I enjoy problem solving, as well as the fact that a single math problem can be approached in many different ways to obtain the same answer.

Professional Experience

During college, Misha spent time tutoring math students in both London and the US. After graduation, she taught middle school students at the Russian School of Mathematics. 

Misha will begin her first year of teaching at Henry M. Gunn High School during the 2022–2023 school year.


Misha is an avid juggler and enjoys singing in her local choir.
