"Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on the Earth, for what they believe they will become." Brook Hampton

Hello! I am excited to be working at AIS this year. I grew up in Colorado, USA, but have been traveling and working in different environments for the past several years. The Netherlands will be my 4th international experience as I have also lived in Kazakhstan, Italy and Switzerland.

I enjoy teaching in the elementary level as the curiosity, fun and imagination of my students helps keep me young at heart. I like bringing creativity into the classroom as much as possible through unique projects and artistic representations.

In my free time you will find me reading, traveling, taking photos and collecting plants.
