The second place was occupied by the teacher from kindergarten No. 152 Olga Medvedeva, and the third place – by the speech pathologist of kindergarten No. 206 Marina Kochkina.
Other prize winners of the contest included Ksenia Pytochina, Elena Mikheikina, Elena Akimkina, Yulia Ermakova, and Olga Surutkina. They represent kindergartens No. 71, 23, 88, 141, and 70 respectively.
Congratulating the participants on the end of the creative contest, city head Valery Savelyev thanked the kindergarten teachers for putting their hearts into the job.
In turn, head of the education department of Penza Yuri Golodyaev drew attention to the fact that it is the surrounding that makes an impact on workers of kindergartens.
"Why do they say that teachers are forever young? Because youth always surrounds them – they cannot age, it is necessary to be with their pupils. You are very close to childhood, your soul will remain young forever. This is really true," he noted.
Yury Golodyaev emphasized that "a special light" always comes from workers of institutions of preschool education.
