I was born in Washington state, America and have been teaching for over 10 years. I am a qualified teacher in America and hold my teaching license from the states. I began my teaching journey at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
Prior to joining BSB Sanlitun, I taught for 1 year in Shanghai and 8 years in Beijing at different International Schools in different districts. Before moving to China, I taught in Las Vegas, Nevada at a Title I School. I have taught a wide range of students from different ages, Year 1 -Year 5, and from many different cultural backgrounds.
In my classroom, you will find a positive, fun, and engaging environment. I am always continuing my professional development by learning new ways to engage and excite students about learning and developing the whole child.
Outside of school, I love exploring Beijing with my dog; her name is Noodles. Noodles is a great travel buddy around Beijing and the best-behaved pug you will ever meet. I am passionate about travelling and love learning about other cultures especially food! I love to eat and try new dishes! I am really excited about developing professionally further at BSB and am looking forward to meeting you all!
