Mr. Dmytro Korposh

High School Mathematics Teacher

Field: High School

How long have you taught at IST?
It’s my second year at IST.

Describe IST in 3 words.
Interesting, fun, challenging

What is your favorite thing about the community?
I am really impressed how supportive and caring the community is. The school community has done a lot to support those in need both in the school community and outside. Helping students in India to get their education, collecting donations for those who suffered from the earthquake in Croatia, supporting staff members who have disabled family members and now helping people in Ukraine during the war.

What are the typical characteristics of an IST student?
The typical thing is that they are all different.
Wait, no! They all prefer the same fashion. So even though there is no uniform at school, it looks like there is.
On a serious note: I think all our students aim for high results.

What is your favorite memory at IST?
When students change their narrative from “Why do I need to study this?” to “Wow, I really like it!”

What would you be if you weren’t a teacher?
Researcher, software engineer or a sport instructor.
Now I’m all of these 3 combined as a teacher. 🙂
