Helena Afanasijeva
Russian Language Teacher

I will be teaching Russian language (Grades 6.1, 6.2, 7, 8, 9 and Grade 10 (foreign). This will be my 2nd academic year at EIS.


  • Latvian University, Bachelor degree in Philology
  • Master degree in Russian Philology
  • Before EIS I was working at Riga State Classical Gymnasium.

    I am proud of my students.

    After work I like traveling, reading and spending time with family.

    To get up in the morning and go to school I tell myself... Today is the best day of my life.

    When I was a child I wanted to become a teacher.

    I am learning from kids patience.

    The school of the future is... The format of learning is flexible, creative and forward-moving.
