After graduating with a Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia and receiving her teaching license in Canada, she started working overseas, first in Japan, next in China, then Indonesia, and now she has returned to China to work at LIS. Currently she is completing a Master in Educational Technology from her alma mater.
As an educator she believes being knowledgeable can help children grow up to be people who can do what others ask them to, but creativity can help children realise their ideas. To bring out children’s creativity she promotes cross-curricular learning and student agency because it should be the child who takes centre-stage of their learning.
When she is not at school she enjoys reading, doing aerial yoga and pilates.
