I had worked as a primary/secondary teacher in Canada for 16 years before embarking on my international teaching adventure. I taught in inclusive classrooms, special needs programs, and EAL resource classes. I have lived in Guangzhou for 2 years teaching EAL students. I am excited to join the BSG family for the collegial team atmosphere as well as the opportunity to pursue more professional development. In my classes I aim to engage the students and encourage them to build on their individual strength to help them reach for their goals and grow.
My family and I moved to Asia excited to explore the unique and wonderful countries, cultures and foods nearby. On the weekends I love to read, explore the neighbourhood and greater Guangzhou. We enjoy traveling within China and to neighbouring countries. I enjoy the beach and snorkelling on my holidays and hope to learn to scuba dive.
