Nancy Rafalko comes to Pegasus with over ten years of experience as an English teacher in China and abroad. She has seen repeatedly that with passion and hard work, students can achieve more than they ever imagined. Her basic premise in teaching is that, although it is important for a student to have an answer to the question, "What did you learn in class today?" it is possibly even more important for them to be able to answer another question: "What did you do in class?" She believes in students developing their minds together, in and out of the classroom, through demonstrated and acknowledged effort: writing, reading, explaining, analyzing, creating, thinking.
She looks forward to meeting our new students and their parents, and to a new year filled with active intellectual effort and achievement.
