Magdalena Dormichev inspires her students

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – As many Mustangs begin their first year of school, they are joined by new teachers such as math teacher Magdalena Dormichev.

Dormichev completed her internship at Newsome High School in Hillsborough County last year and was brought to LRHS after hearing great reports about it and wanting to stay close to home.

For her first year, Dormichev is teaching Algebra 1 and Algebra 1A.

“My favorite part of teaching is connecting with my students and watching them have breakthroughs. When they have that ‘Aha!’ moment, I feel like I’ve done my job well,” stated Dormichev.

Being a new teacher, her only teaching experience was in a COVID-19 environment, but she hopes one day she’ll be able to experience a normal teaching environment.

Dormichev was born and raised in Sarasota, FL and she graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelors in Math Education.

Dormichev’s main view for teaching is to share her knowledge with others. Making math accessible for everyone is her main focus.
