I have been teaching at Korea Kent Foreign School for the past 6 years. The reason I have stayed here for so long is we have so much going on. For the past 2 1/2 years we have been transitioning from a school operating out of textbooks to a school using Essential Questions, Enduring Understandings, and UbD to drive our school forward. During this transition I developed the 21st Century 5R's Presentations. For the past year I have been helping my students do what they, and their parents, never thought they could. A long the way there have been many alterations and I look forward making many more as I share with other teachers and receive feedback.

I am also passionate about spending time with my family, traveling, and running.
