Learning Support Coordinator & MYP English teacher
I am originally from New Hampshire and Florida in the USA, but I am also Irish. For the past ten years I’ve taught English Language and Literature and English for language learners in China, Romania, Brunei, and Vietnam. I love teaching English because it gives students the opportunity to be creative, and develop and express their opinions and ideas about the world. I have consistently advocated for students who learn in different ways throughout my teaching career, and love unlocking the potential of individual learners.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, swimming, and wildlife spotting.
When I was small, I read a book called Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan about Norwegian children who helped the resistance by smuggling gold bullion on their sleds to keep it out of Nazi hands. I am happy to have the opportunity to live and work in a place that so captivated my imagination as an early reader.
