Over the past 10 years, she has taught in South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, China, and briefly in the UK before settling with her family in Sweden. Lynn taught Year 6 at a bilingual school in Stockholm and went on to complete a Master of Arts degree in Communication for Development. Lynn’s prior experience in Asia and Europe has made her considerate of cultural differences and have a broader understanding of global teaching practices.
Lynn’s interests in photography, hiking and different countries’ food and culture has made the move to Singapore and the multicultural teaching environment of DCIS an easy transition.
