The Highland Teacher

Musakay Musakaev is an English teacher. Every day, he drives for five hours to reach his students in Ingerdakh – a high mountain village in Dagestan, Russia. During rainstorms, landslides can wash away the road. Sometimes, Musakay even has to wade across rivers. Despite offers of more lucrative and easier jobs from friends, he insists that teaching these children is his calling. How did Musakay end up as a teacher at a school in the heart of the mountains?

On his way to work, English teacher Musakay Musakaev faces falling rocks, landslides, and floods from mountain rivers. Yet, he courageously navigates these hazards to reach Ingerdakh, a high mountain village in Dagestan, Russia, to teach his students.
