This is my first year at CDS and am incredibly grateful and excited to be teaching 6th and 7th grade social studies. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, USA, I’ve been living and working in Costa Rica for about two and a half years now. After three years working in television production at a local NBC affiliated TV station in Missouri, I took the plunge into teaching and international life as a member of the United States Peace Corps in 2011. There I spent two years in a secondary school on the small island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. A blossoming interest in exploring new lands and cultures as well as a new found love for teaching brought me to South Korea where I taught English as a foreign language in elementary school for the next two years. I then obtained a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages before spending a year teaching at a university in Mozambique with the English Language Fellows program. I’ve since found my home here in Costa Rica where I live with my wife and two dogs.
