    Hi! I am from Chicago. I am excited to be a part of the Hangzhou International School family. This is the second time that I’ll be living abroad since I was an English teacher in Japan. I’ve also taught for shorter periods in Mexico, India, and Bahrain. For the last few years, I’ve been involved with college-level writing projects related to multilingual writers. Previously, I taught middle school Language Arts and Social Studies in Chicago’s public schools. What I enjoy most about teaching is encouraging students to be active participants and developers of service-learning opportunities.  My hobbies include creative writing, traveling, cooking, Zumba, and painting. I am also an avid learner of languages -- Spanish, Japanese, and now French!
