About Me

I've been teaching for 18 years in both Australia and the United States; 10 of those here in Martin County. In Australia I was a teacher of English, History, and Japanese to high school students in Year 8-12. Since moving to the United States I've taught Pre IB Inquiry Skills, English IV Honors, Pre IB English I and II, and IB English III and IV. My higher education was completed in Australia at one of Australia's most prestigious universities, the University of Queensland in Brisbane where I earned my B.A. (majoring in English, History and Japanese), Postgraduate Diploma of Education, and Masters Degree in Educational Studies. http://www.uq.edu.au/ I also have a Masters of Educational Leadership from the American College of Education and I am a National Board Certified Teacher of English and Language Arts of Adolescents and Young Adults.
