I teach Economics because it fascinates me. Because it is the study of human behavior. Economics isn’t about data and graphs and problem sets. It is the study of people and their story and their history and the forces of society that we are born into. It provides us with an understanding of ourselves. It is not hyperbole to say that a thorough understanding of economics enables us to better understand the human condition. I truly believe that.
I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge in Santiago, Chile. Prior to moving here I taught and served as high school principal at the American School of Nicaragua for four years. I began my teaching career in 2002 at the Atlanta Girls’ School in the United States.
