    018-19 will be my third year teaching at BISH. Before moving to Houston I was living in Jakarta, Indonesia where I worked at Jakarta Intercultural School for 2 years. Prior to working in Indonesia, I was teaching at two different International schools in Hanoi, Vietnam for a total of 8 years, also as an Early Years Educator. I am originally from New York and I have a B.A. in Psychology and a M.S. in Early Childhood Education. My passion for teaching has been formed and ignited by the philosophy of the Reggio Emilia Approach. I was fortunate enough to do the 2014 International Study Tour in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

    I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Lone Star College. I decided to take a break from school to have more time to dedicate to my family. I have worked with students ranging from 3years - 14years of age. I knew working with kids was my passion when I began my first Preschool job! I have since then continued to work with students, whether it is educating them in English and Math or Life Skills. I work afternoons as a teacher in a Learning Center. I tutor students in Math and English, its an additional way for me to interact with students. There's no better feeling than knowing you've had an impact on a child's life!

    I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Early Years children for the last ten years in a variety of different locations and countries. I first began teaching in my home town in Northern California and after I finished my degree in Child Development I took an internship teaching in Germany.

    About you

    I came to Houston 11 years ago from England with my family, we moved here for my husband’s job and my son has been at BISH since he was in Year 2.  We live in Katy and enjoy what Houston has to offer but also like to travel to other States. We love to ski, hike and take road trips! 

    This School is different to all others I have worked at because…

    I love the BISH philosophy of allowing the child freedom to explore their interests, manage their time and learn in the way that works best for them. I am especially excited to be working in the early years program where the class size and neighbourhood allows this to happen and gives the children a wonderful foundation for learning.
