Marina Resnik-Torchinsky

I was born in Kiev Ukraine. When I was 6 years old my parents immigrated to Düsseldorf in Germany.
I graduated from University in Wuppertal with a master’s in education with a major in Russian and Social Studies. My passion and love to teach started in the age of 16 when in was teaching Kids in a Sunday school. When I was traveling through the USA at the age of 18, I fell in love not only to my wonderful husband but also in the beauty of Washington. I moved to Washington in 2009. The last 10 years I was working in a German School in Bellevue where I was the Assistant Principal the last three years.
We have three girls who we are raising three lingual at home. I love to travel, enjoying the time with my family and our two dogs.
I am incredibly happy to join the EGLS German community and able to continue teaching since teaching is my biggest passion in my life.
