I have in taught in Jamaica, Colombia, and Malaysia at American and International schools. All of my travels have enabled me to share new cultures and personal experiences with my students. I am passionate about understanding the environment and our connections to it. This year we will be out and about in our surrounding forest and gardens and experience all they have to offer.
Middle School English Language Arts - Eighth Grade Social Studies
I’m in my 20-somethingth year of teaching, and I’ve never been happier with my job or the school where I work! I’ve spent about a third of my career in high school, a third in elementary school, and a little bit more than a third in middle school. I can emphatically tell you that middle school is my sweet spot! I love the kids’ enthusiasm, the way they are finding out who they are, and even the drama that comes with middle school. My strong background in camp has allowed me the chance to spend time with kids outside of the classroom, and this is where I believe my love for middle schoolers began.
