Year 2 Teacher


Teaching young children is my passion. While teaching life skills to underprivileged children in New York, I became enthusiastic to educate children. 

I completed my Early Childhood Education (ECE) at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and my Bachelor of Arts degree at Azusa Pacific University in California, USA. I have a great deal of experience in Early Childhood Education (EYFS) and Key Stage 1 in Canada, the United States, and China. 

I moved to Beijing in 2016 with my family and our Lhasa Apso dog named Jaco. As a family, we enjoy traveling, the arts, and visiting museums. In my spare time, I enjoy running, and since living in China, I have completed the Great Wall Marathon twice!

I’m very excited to join the BSB family in 2020, contribute to the school community, and get to know you better.
