Welcome Iryna!

By Iryna Paltseva

Hello everyone! My name is Iryna Paltseva and I’m very proud to introduce myself to you as the new editor of Learning Curves. I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to contribute my energy and broad personal experience to Learning Curves. I was born and raised in a family of school teachers so the subject of education and self-education at any age is near to my heart.

I’m a newcomer from Ukraine. Last year became very challenging for me, as I was forced to leave my stable and settled life due to the occupation of my hometown by Russian troops. Nine months ago, my family landed in Canada and our lives started from scratch. As never before, it became crystal clear to me that we can only take our own knowledge and experience with us even to the other side of the planet. And I again appreciated the importance of education. After graduating from university, I thought that my student years were behind me. But over the past months, I have embarked on the path of education again – first I took English courses, and then I decided to expand my professional knowledge, and now I am studying to get a Canadian certificate.

Being a mature student, working part-time, and raising my amazing daughter at the same time can be challenging sometimes, but I feel I’m on the right path, and investing in my own education is the best type of investment there is. Learning new things every day is such a pleasure for me! I am very happy to be part of the great Learning Curves team and I will do my best to make you, dear readers, fall in love with adult education and see, that it is possible to become a better professional at any age!
