International Educator

As a former international student and growing up as an Adult Third Culture Kid, I understand the importance of an international education and the benefits of attending a World School. A World School is a community of global leaders who are life-long learners that appreciate of other cultures while also understanding the uniqueness of their own culture. A World School’s vision is visible in all aspects of the school’s stakeholders including students, teachers, administrators, and families.

21st Century Learning

I believe in supporting students to become independent life-long learners that take ownership in their education. I aim to create a learning environment that is student centered and promotes inquiry. Students will feel safe, curious, and apart of a community of learners. I strive to make learning fun, authentic, and hands-on. I believe in differentiated learning and promoting multiple intelligence to help all students reach their full potential.

Role of Technology in Education

Technology is an essential tool and skill for students and teachers. I believe technology should support students to become independent and collaborative digital citizens that use technology authentically and appropriately to enhance learning, communication, and creativity.
