Grade 4, Tennessee
Country of Origin: Russia

I chose my piano teacher because she is from onr of the most difficult country to immigrat from.
She said it was exciting and scary at the same time. she traveled by a plane. It took 13 hours and two stops. One in Canada and Ireland. Her favorite things in America were freedom and human rights. In Russia she had alot of snow, she misses that and her aunts, uncles and cousins. Her troubles in America were the language, the teleivision, radios, signs,directions and the English alphabet. She told me in Russia they only celebrate,on March 8, Womens Day and Valentines Day. I asked her if she had a hard time finding a job. She said''Not Really,''. Her favorite thing about America is the people becuase they are warm and friendly.
