About Me


To see the world


I am a teacher at an American school in Korea. I currently teach Spanish. Teaching overseas was my dream--I am living it. :-) I plan on being in Seoul for a couple more years and then to another school in a different country. I love languages, although I personally have no linguistic talents. I love to read and my dog.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think I have been blessed to have done and seen some amazing things. I think what sticks in my mind the most is swimming in Biolumenescent Bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico. It looked like my body was on fire in the water. Can't wait to do it again.
