Physical Education

Hey y’all!  I am originally from New Jersey and graduated from The College of New Jersey in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in health and exercise science.  I have been teaching physical education at BISW since the fall of 2017.  The wide range of students I do teach, reception through year 11, always keeps me on my toes.  No two days are ever the same and I love it!  I help coach multiple teams throughout the school year and run a couple of sports clubs when I am not coaching.

My first year of teaching was in Rome, Italy at another international school where I taught primary and lower secondary.  The following two years were at a public school in a very small town called Marion, South Carolina.  There, I was split between two schools, teaching only primary.  Even though I loved living down south with all the palm trees and sun, I wanted to explore another area of this country.  Since I am now living in DC, it is a huge perk being closer to all my family and friends.

When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my friends, either going on hikes or eating a bunch of delicious food!  I am obsessed with listening to different kinds of music and am usually singing along to it…as most of my students will tell you that I constantly play music in class. 

Why do I love teaching?

It’s one of the best feelings, as a teacher, when you see the lightbulb go off in one of your student’s heads.  When everything you teach them comes together and you can see you have helped make a difference, that is what I live for!

Interesting fact:

I have played the violin for 9 years and used to be heavily involved in choir and the school musicals when I was in high school.
