I am originally from San Diego, California. This is my first year as Head of Primary at KICS. I have been a Primary School Principal for 6 years, previously in Rwanda as well as in the United States, where I was also a PYP Coordinator. Before this, I taught in various international schools in Uganda and California. I hold a M.A. in Education and a teaching credential with an emphasis on cross-cultural language acquisition. I believe in equipping children to be creative, self-motivated, life-long learners who are prepared to be citizens of a global world. My hobbies include quality time with family and friends, walking, traveling, reading and spending time at the beach. I look forward to an exciting year at KICS!
