Dear university, my congratulations on your 95th anniversary! I am happy to make a declaration of love and devotion to teacher’s profession. I have already been working as a physical education teacher at Starobilsk gymnasium for 41 years and I am constantly improving my skills.

Institute years have left bright memories in my heart:

  • work at collective farm has developed team friendship and taught to cooperate (it has been a real fun!);
  • preparations and performances at May 1 and November 7 parades. We have been proud and happy with this moments;
  • camping trip with guitar songs;
  • swimming test and 5 meters jumping, fear and fun;
  • lectures in room No. 505 where the whole course (4 groups by 25 students)has been. It has been a wonderful time to chat;
  • anatomy classes where we have indicated nervous and muscles at preserved body (it has been terrifying the first time);
  • physiology classes where we have studied reflexes through the frogs;
  • interesting sport trainings and lessons;
  • skating rink near dormitory and stadium where we have enjoyed skating (faculty has given out skates to everybody);
  • dormitory room for 7 persons, education and communication was fun and fascinating in it.

I would like to lower my head towards V. P. Shutvynov, V. Kovalko, V. P. Shovhur, S. V. Kruhlyi, Ye. Ya. Dumina, H. A. Kolot, A. M. Kolomyiets, V. H. Shevtsov and the others who have given me good knowledge and a wish to improve myself all the time.
