About Me...at SAS
Current Teaching Positions (2018-2019)
Additional Roles & Responsibilities:
WHY I teach...
I believe learning should be relevant, real and fun. My goal is for students to become competent global citizens, learn to think critically, show respect, care about others, become involved members of their community and become life-long learners.
WHAT I Teach...
As an educator, I'm a firm believer in educating the whole child by providing a wide variety of authentic learning opportunities through experiential learning, service-learning, interdisciplinary learning, and problem-based learning.
HOW I Teach...
I work closely with the wonderful team of teachers here at SAS to develop rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum that is designed to motivate students to get involved, and empower students to make positive changes within their own community. I get students involved into authentic investigations about the world around us, our past and all the possibilities the future holds. Both in and outside of the classroom, I work to engage students in learning more about global issues and work with them to help them understand how this connects to their own community. Students study history to help them understand how past civilizations and events shaped the world they live in today--and why it matters. We look at all topics and issues from multiple perspectives and respect different viewpoints and strive for understanding of differences.
Through classroom activities and extracurricular activities, I mentor students and expose them to career opportunities within fields of international issues, provide students opportunity for service-learning so they can experience becoming change-makers first hand. I embed service and action opportunities within the curriculum and offer opportunities for real-world experiences to connect their learning to their lives--and to the lives of others in a meaningful way.
