Interview with Anna Ageicheva, May 12, 2021

Project: Peace Corps: The Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Oral History Project

Interview Summary

Abstract: Anna Ageicheva Response Volunteer Counterpart Anna Ageicheva, Dean of Humanities at the Poltova University of Economics and Trade in Poltova, Ukraine, met her first Response Peace Corps Volunteer in 2006, and, since then, until the pandemic of 2020, served as a counterpart to the Volunteers at the University. As a part of her work, she and the Volunteers created English Clubs for the University students across the curriculum; in collaboration with the Volunteers, she created instructional materials that continue to be used to teach English to philology students. Additionally, she and her faculty members learned to co-teach or team teach with Volunteers, and, as a result, these teams modelled state-of-the-art teaching strategies in their classrooms. Ageicheva also applied for and received grant money that was used for her to attend seminars and conferences where she learned innovative teaching strategies, and for her to co-teach with a faculty member at Santa Fe College in Gainsville, Florida. On a personal level, Ageicheva learned to smile and to be friendly to others; she attributes this approach to life to the Volunteers with whom she’s worked. She considers herself to be a “true friend of Peace Corps.”
