Master's in Education
Originally, I am from Winston-Salem, North Carolina and although most of my family still resides there, I do have family that lives here in Texas. I moved to Plano three years ago to attend SMU’s M.Ed. program. Before moving to Plano, I lived and taught in Taiwan for eight years. While in Taiwan, I had the wonderful opportunity of teaching ESL to elementary children of all ages and levels. It was during my time in Taiwan that I realized that I had a strong passion for teaching and helping young learners. This passion brought me to Texas where I have been sharing my knowledge and experience with students here in the US. Since moving from Taiwan, I have had the opportunity to teach 5th grade science on a magnet campus in Garland and am now starting my third year at Hickey Elementary.
