Hello BISW, I’m excited to join such a multicultural community! Even though I’m originally from the DMV, my practice as an educator began in the windy city of Chicago, and continued most recently in Bangkok, Thailand. This year I’m looking forward to teaching Secondary Humanities (Geography & Global Perspectives), in addition to a course on Social-Emotional Wellbeing. From year to year, it is my hope to see students not only grow intellectually, but holistically as well. My philosophy as an educator and lifelong learner, is rooted in the concept of Value-Creation. How can we, as learners and educators, create value in our school which in turn will have an impact in our local communities and beyond? I look forward to being a part of this rewarding experience. With that I’d like to wish everyone a healthy, safe, and enjoyable 2021-22 academic school year!
