 Olena Welch

IFES Eurasia Training Secretary

Olena is a teacher, a trainer, and a mentor at heart. Nothing brings her more joy than to connect with her students, to connect them with the subject, to help them expand their knowledge, form a skill, and cultivate an attitude of a lifelong learner.
The purpose of teaching and training others, as she sees it, is to interweave the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual in the learning process and in the lives of her students. She doubts good teaching can be reduced to techniques and methods; good teaching and training comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.
Whatever she teaches or trains, she wants the learning experience for her students and herself to be permeated with a sense of community and a sense of connectedness - to ourselves, to one another, and to God. She is convinced that training and educating people means guiding them on their inner journey toward more truthful ways of seeing and being in the world.
