Sierra Brimhall, преподаватель английского языка

Brimhall, Sierra Ann, Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts

Sierra grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, an area of America known for being the center of the Mormon religion and for its northern mountain ranges and southern desert landscapes. She attended Smith College in Northampton Massachusetts, where she studied Russian Literature and History. During the 2013-2014 academic year, she studied at the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Saint Petersburg State University, where she taught conversational English to Russian adults and university students. Since graduating from Smith, she has worked with Russian language periodicals at the Library of Congress in the nation’s capital of Washington DC. When not working you can usually find her reading with a large cup of coffee nearby. In addition to being a lover of coffee and books, she is also an avid collector of hats. Sierra enjoys both listening to and playing music; she has played jazz trumpet for 12 years and can play the French horn as well. She looks forward to returning to Russia and is excited to meet her fellow teachers and students!
