My name is Amy De Jong and I am happy to be joining the Secondary English Department. I will be teaching grades 10-12 English Language Arts this coming school year. Previously I have taught Secondary English in the Dominican Republic, China and in the United Arab Emirates. I look forward to continuing to work in an International community. I started my teaching career in New York City after attending NYU and the desire to teach in a multicultural atmosphere started there. When I'm not teaching or reading I am enjoying various outdoor activities, traveling, playing music and caring for animals.
