Albina Sharafullina


Albina is from Russia and has been living in the United States with her husband, Leo, and her son, Albert, since 2012. She discovered the Reggio Emilia philosophy during a tour at Our Neighborhood and it spoke to her right away. It was a relief for her to learn that there is a way to discipline other than the reward or punishment system.

The Our Neighborhood philosophies had all the answers regarding dealing with struggles for Albina as a new parent: setting limits; owning weaknesses; being frank when overwhelmed (baby or parent);  working out ways of reconnecting; making plans of what to do next time; and so much more!
