I received my Masters of Public Affairs in 2018 from the University of Texas at Dallas and my BA in Elementary Education from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I studied German in Germany during my time at Chapel Hill. I lived in China for over 16 years, teaching photography to adults and nursery-grade 12 at an international school. I studied Chinese as well. I love taking complex ideas and finding ways to present them for not just for immediate understanding, but also an increased comfort with the subject going forward. This is true across subjects, but particularly in math, science, photography, and various computer software packages such as Photoshop. I truly believe all students can learn, and I enjoy the challenge and rewards working with a struggling student and seeing them "get" something they didn't think was possible. I am a lifelong learner myself. I happily spend time traveling, reading, trying a new recipe or a new craft, or expanding my knowledge of German, Spanish and Chinese.
