I am from Connecticut in the United States. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education with a concentration in English. My Masters is Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages with a concentration in curriculum development. I have been a Connecticut state certified teacher for ten years and have taught in the USA, South Korea, Indonesia and the UAE.
I have lived in Dubai for the past six years and have loved my experience here.
I believe that all children can learn and be successful in supportive environments. A successful learner is encouraged to pursue interests and strengths, while also constantly acknowledging what improvements need to be worked on. Every learner is different and brings his/her own strengths, experience and personality to the classroom. I believe that a supportive environment takes these qualities and uses them to help everyone learn from each other and excel.
