Hello, I am Irina Stumpo. I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I earned my Master’s Degree in Library Science from St. Petersburg State University. I moved to the United States and then attended the University of Virginia where I earned my teaching certification. I have been teaching at McKinley since 2000. When I am not at school I enjoy spending my time with friends and reading in both, Russian and English languages. I’m a crazy fan of Washington Capitals and I like to travel the world with my daughter, Lucy.
