Mrs. Gina Maksimchuk
Hi! I’m Gina Maksimchuk. This is my 8th year teaching at Abbot. I’ve also taught a 1st and 2nd grade split and special education. I attended the University of Michigan for my Bachelor’s and received my Master’s from Eastern Michigan University. I absolutely love teaching kindergarten! Five year olds never cease to amuse and amaze me. Each year brings new little smiling faces who are excited to be at school. What a privilege to get to share that and encourage curiosity and lifelong learning!
I live in the Abbot neighborhood- say hello if you see me! My husband, Dmitrii, and I have two daughters: Ellie and Caroline. Ellie loves to ride her bike and climb trees! Caroline is exploring new foods and trying to walk. We also have a big lab mix named Blitzen. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, trying new foods, and nature walks. My husband and I also like to travel and see new places together.
