EAL Teacher

I have a Master’s degree in Japanese, a Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and a Certificate in Teaching Special Needs.  As well as the United States, I have lived and taught in New Zealand, Australia, Cambodia, Japan, the UK, Belgium, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.


Since all three of my children attended BISW, I worked as a volunteer in the Learning Support Centre the first two years we were living here, and joined the teaching staff when the position of EAL teacher was created in August 2012.

I was born in New Zealand and grew up in a scenic country town of 3000 people, under a mountain.  My home town is called Te Aroha, which means “love” in Maori, the language of the indigenous people.  I am an avid cyclist and fitness fanatic, and I enjoy reading and watching movies in any time left over.

The Learning Support Centre at BISW is a unique place to work because all four teachers work together to form an efficient, professional and creative team. We share our knowledge and international experience, and bounce ideas off one another to create effective individualized programs for each of our students.
