about the regional stage of the V city competition of search groups “Outstanding Nizhny Novgorod citizens – the history of their discoveries, inventions and innovations, creative achievements”


Teaching is an art, a work no less titanic than that of a writer or composer, but more difficult and responsible.

The teacher addresses the human soul not through music, like a composer, not with the help of colors, like an artist, but directly. He educates with his knowledge and love, his attitude to the world.
