I've taught 2nd & 3rd grade at the International School of Kigali, Rwanda for the past 4 years. Previously I taught English and Computer Science at a boarding school in Musanze, Rwanda.
Student centered teaching with an emphasis on internationalism, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving.
an awesome group of third graders and a life of travel and adventure
I attended the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. My Bachelor's Degree is in History and my Master's Degree is in Elementary Education. I have an IB certification for PYP and I am currently teaching the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
I'm a native Northern Virginian, but I'm currently living in Kigali, Rwanda in the heart of Africa. East Africa has been my home for the last 5 years and it's changed my life for the better. I am interested in elementary curriculum development and leadership in international education.
