Year 2 Teacher

I am originally from Akron, Ohio, USA, but began my teaching career in the Pacific Northwest in Portland, Oregon. I found my passion for international education while teaching kindergarteners in Seoul, South Korea, and pre-kindergarteners in Shanghai, China. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of immersing myself in another culture, language, and way of life. From these experiences, I knew I wanted to be a part of the international community at Discovery College. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by like-minded students and staff where international-mindedness is valued and global citizenship is practiced on a daily basis. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading, hiking and exploring Hong Kong.
