    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.

    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.

    After completing Bachelors of Science in Chemistry, I completed my degree in education and started working as a teacher in India. For four years, I worked as a full time science teacher in an elementary school in Madurai, India. I enjoyed working with children to achieve their potential and working together with parents. I later started a small private school in Chennai for three years before moving to Singapore. Since 2015, I have volunteered as a teacher to teach Tamil to young children in Bharathi Kalai Mandram, Houston.
