As the new Head of School to BSI, from the beginning of the present academic year 2022-2023, I want to formally introduce myself to our community. It is important for me to let you know who I am, my work experience, my philosophy, and above all my passion for education, in regard to working with children and their families in an international environment. To bring you up to date, I have been heavily involved in the international school circuit for over 30 years.
I began my career at Taipei American School, Taiwan, as a first grade teacher. This experience had such a positive impact on my life and career ambitions that I continued with later teaching positions in Hawaii and the Philippines. Meanwhile, I continued my studies and obtained a Master’s degree in Teaching and Curriculum from Michigan State University, soon after I also received a degree in Education Administration (K-12) from Western Washington University.
Following these events, I began my career in school administration as principal at the American School of Asunción, Paraguay, The American School of Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela, and the Columbus School in Medellin, Colombia. Afterwards I stepped into Head of School Positions at the International School of Panama, Panama, Myanmar International School, Myanmar, and the International School Eastern Seaboard, Thailand.
