This will be my first year at IPS and I am excited to be joining everyone this academic year. I have been teaching for 7 years in a couple of different capacities. The first 5 years of my teaching career I was teaching English as a Foreign Language in South Korea to students ranging in age from Kindergarten to Grade 9. I was then the homeroom teacher for Grade 4 (Year 5) at an IB school in Tanzania for two years before deciding to join IPS.
As a teacher, I have always been passionate about technology and working with students and teachers to use new ways to enhance and show learning through inquiry. I am looking forward to joining IPS this August to work with the students and staff as the technology coach.
