I have over fifteen years teaching experience, including experience in immersion programs abroad and EFL.
I incorporate a wide variety of teaching styles. Much of my teaching encourages self-discovery and self-expression.
It is an honor to be a part of my students' lives. Whether it is a year or five years after they have left my classroom, some come back to tell me some of their best moments in elementary were in my class. No award could be as meaningful to me than that.
B.A. in Japanese Studies with a focus in international political economy, M.S. in Elementary Education
I am passionate about world travel and I always find ways to bring that back into my classroom.
