Teaching has brought all over the world! I worked and lived in Germany for six years, teaching the British Curriculum to Year 4 and Year 1 students. Following that, I taught in a Reggio Emilia inspired school in Bangkok for two years. There I taught Year 2. I am now living and working back in the US, but my international mindset continues to influence my teaching practices.
Teaching through curiosity, love, and respect.
Recognized as an "Outstanding Teacher" by OFSTED school inspectorate.
I graduated from North Central College in Naperville, IL with a degree in Elementary and Middle School Education. In addition, I have been certified as a Reading Specialist. Although my training was outstanding, I've honestly learned far more from my students and colleagues.
Teaching isn't my only passion. I love traveling, cooking and photography.
