Educational Philosophy:

  • All students are capable of doing great things in life.  By doing my best to teach them another language, I aim to help and encourage them to reach their full potential.  Being bilingual has a profound effect on the brain.  It allows one to better adjust to different environments, earn higher salaries, live abroad, learn additional languages, and have sharper cognitive skills such as improved memory and focus, better decision making skills, and more advanced and abstract thinking abilities.  Most importantly, students who are bilingual are exposed to more than one culture, which leads to acceptance and understanding of others.  

Hobbies, Extracurricular Activities:

  • spending time with family, especially my boys

  • making crafts & decorations

  • interior decorating

  • reading interior design/ diy/ home blogs

  • making pizza

  • drinking good coffee

Favorite Quote:

  • “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

  • “In diversity, there is beauty and there is strength.”

  • “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”.

- Maya Angelou
