Teaching History: I love teaching and have spent many years teaching in many different fields including music, art, choir, kindergarten, ESL, Early Childhood/Pre-K; This is my 4th year here at Huffman-IB World School!
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: In my free time, I enjoy playing chamber music with my friends and family, embark in adventurous hiking, baking with my neices and nephews, and reading with soft classical music and sipping a cup of rich coffee.
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I wanted to explore new adventure in teaching and IB PYP at Huffman matched my desire. It has indeed been a fun and exciting experience.
