I am a Google Certified international educator with experience in primary education as well teaching English as a Foreign Language. My primary interest lies in early literacy, mother tongue maintenance, and adult literacy. I have lived most of my adult life as an expat. I have worked in international schools in Hungary, Uganda, Kenya and Republic of the Congo.
I believe in continuous professional and personal development and in the power of dialogue, no matter how difficult. I believe international educators have an obligation to make connections to host culture and the cultures of each student in their class. I believe every child can thrive in a truly supportive, yet challenging environment where they get praised for their effort, encouraged to explore, challenge themselves and ask questions.
