Inga Makayed


Hello, my name is Inga Makayed. This is my fifth year teaching at COA. I received my Bachelor’s Degree and then CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credentials from California State University of Sacramento. Growing up, I always dreamed to become a teacher. The dream has finally come true when in 1998 I received my first teaching job back in Belarus, a small country where I was born and grew up in. I taught German Language for several years before moving to the United States. My burning desire to teach and to serve the community of great people I myself now became a part of kept me going. I learned to overcome the obstacles and pursued my education. “Determination and hard work always pay off,” that is what I keep telling my students every single day. I enjoy jogging, cooking, camping, and traveling. However, most of all I love spending time with my friends. I am looking forward to seeing the smiley faces of my students every day and having a great year with them!
