I have over ten years of experience working in a school setting as an English teacher for English language learners. I have a master's degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus in Special Education from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. My undergraduate degree is in Sociology. I also have a TEFL certificate. I love to help students with reading and writing skills. I enjoy helping students learn new vocabulary words and explore their interests. When I need inspiration for teaching, I visit the UNESCO website where I am reminded that education is a global effort. While doing research for my graduate project, I came across a document called Education 2030, which also influences my teaching philosophy. The document states that, "Learners should be able to link their learning experiences to the real world and have a sense of purpose in their learning."

I enjoy running and exploring different natural areas. I also like yoga and eating different snacks. I have a cat named Luna. When I go on vacation, I like to explore natural areas and learn about local traditions.
