Greetings, I am Zhanna Montgomery from Memphis, Tennessee.   I am very pleased to join the LIS school community. 

Throughout my career, I focused both on Human Resources and education. I have 12 years of experience teaching at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels. I have taught Intensive English, elementary homeroom and middle school subjects, as well as Senior Research Project and IB Creativity, Action, and Service in secondary school. I have lived and worked in Kyrgyzstan, Malta, China, India, and Kazakhstan.

I hold Master’s Degree and teaching license in teaching English as a Foreign Language from The College of New Jersey, USA, Masters of Business Administration from Union University, Jackson, TN, and a Bachelor of Science from Blue Mountain College, MS, USA. 

Working as a Human Resources manager for 2 large US and Canadian corporations for 11 years provided me with the opportunity to administer benefits and compensation, recruitment and training, regulatory and safety compliance.  I hold a professional certification – Senior Professional of Human Resources, and I’m an active member of Society of Human Resources Managers. 

I am passionate about learning about critical pedagogy and animal rescue. I enjoy music, literature and cinema.
