A teacher for the last 15 years, I started out teaching in the United Stated as an English as a Second Language teacher at MS 254 in New York City. Da Bronx! In 2003, I moved to Turkey, fell in love, started a family and have been teaching English in Turkey ever since.
I graduated from Portland State University in 1998 with a Bachelor's degree where my major was drawing and painting. Art remains a passion and I am currently teaching myself about digital painting.
In 2002, I received my first Master's, also from Portland State University, in Conflict Resolution. In 2008, I earned my Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (D.E.L.T.A.) from Cambridge University (England) and in 2009 my second Master's degree in Education Management from Bilkent University (Turkey).
When I am not teaching, I am hanging out with my family or drawing. I look forward for the chance to work with you!
