Favorite quote: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." ~1 Corinthians
Enjoys Teaching Because:
Being a child's advocate and helping students reach their full learning potential is my greatest joy in the classroom. I like to help students think for themselves and become strong, resilient, contributing citizens! I also like to have fun with my students and discover together new and exciting ways to learn.
My family and I have traveled the world and lived overseas for many years, with most of our time spent in Asia, and most recently, the South Pacific. During those years I taught in international schools and enjoyed working with a very diverse student population in both American style international schools as well as the British PYP international baccalaureate school systems. I have taught every grade in elementary and enjoy teaching at each stage of growth for children. My husband and I love to travel with our three daughters and we enjoy hiking, kayaking, cooking and reading a good book at the beach.
