I am originally from Marietta, Georgia, but I have lived all over the world and the U.S, including Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Alabama, Illinois, Georgia, and North Carolina. I have been teaching in the U.S. for 3 years, and I taught 2 years in Southeast Asia. I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with my Bachelor's in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. In 2015, I married my husband, John, who is from the country of Myanmar is Southeast Asia. Some of my hobbies include reading books, learning new recipes, and traveling to new places!


Why I teach...

I love teaching, because I love to see children figure out a problem that was difficult to solve! It might have been difficult, but they kept going and finally solved it!


Why I chose to teach at Millbrook...

I chose to teach at MECME, because I felt very welcomed into the community right off the bat! As an international traveler, I also have experience working with a diverse background, and each of my teaching jobs in the U.S. have included students from many different nationalities and backgrounds. To me, MECME seemed like a great fit for me to join in!
