I am a certified teacher from the United States with a Master’s Degree in Childhood Education. I started my career overseas working in South Korea. Since then I have worked in Mexico, The United States, and finally, China. This will be my 9th year as a teacher; each year I improve my skills and abilities. I get a lot of inspiration working with children, and I’m driven to be the best teacher that I can be.
During my professional development, I have focused on Project Based Learning, Writing Workshops, and Literacy Skills, among others things. I look forward to putting what I’ve learned throughout my career to use at BSB. I strive to create a happy environment for the students, and to make sure each child feels comfortable in the classroom. For the past three years I have been teaching Year 3 in Tianjin, China. I am excited to begin teaching Year 4 here in Shunyi!
I am from New York, in the United States. I enjoy traveling. Beijing is a wonderful city to explore, and in my free time I often look for new places in the city to discover. I like reading, listening to podcasts, and snowboarding when I can. Chess is another hobby of mine. I’ve been in China for four years, and I currently live with my girlfriend in the Chaoyang District of Beijing. I’m happy to be part of the BSB community, and I hope to meet a lot of people here.
