I have taught in South Korea, Spain, The U.S., and in Mexico. I also have informal experience in Vietnam and the Netherlands. I have taught preschool through adults! I currently teach at high school in California.
According to my students I am a weird but good teacher :)
In high school my journalism teacher named me, "Most prolific writer."
I attended my local public high school and feel that all students have the right to a great education at public schools. The French club went to France (and despite not speaking French) I joined, fund-raised and got bit by the travel bug. While studying Communications at San Diego State University I had the opportunity to study abroad three times. My sophomore year I studied communications through Nanyang Technological University and had the opportunity to backpack through Asia. I later completed my minor in Spanish in Madrid, Spain through Nebrija Universidad and was able to take a Women's Study course (Women in International Development) in Turkey at Bogazici University that Summer. After graduating from San Diego State University I got a job teaching English through the Gyeonggi English Program in Korea (GEPIK). Korea made me realize how much more I needed to know so after I completed my contract I ended up in The Netherlands to take a certificate in teaching English course (CELTA) through the British Language Teaching Center in Amsterdam. After I got my Masters in Bilingual and Multicultural Education through the Insitituto Univesitario de InvestigaciÃ³n en Estudios Norteamerianos Benjamin Franklin (Instituto Fanklin) of the Universidad de AlcalÃ¡ You can read more on my my blog
I have lived abroad, studied abroad, taught abroad, and traveled abroad. These experiences have allowed me to discover my passion for teaching and encouraged me to continue developing this passion. I am idealistic, naive and yet realistic. I don't think I will change the world, but I hope that one day I will teach someone who will.
