Education and Certification:
Who Am I?
I was born and raised in New York State, USA. I have worked as a school counselor in New York City and Kansas. I relocated to Vietnam in 2012. I taught IELTS for six years and it was an enjoyable experience. In addition to teaching, I learned quite a bit from my students.
My Educational Philosophy:
I believe in and respect a school climate that is welcoming to all, a place where each student’s individual uniqueness is respected and nurtured, a place where they dare to be creative, think outside of the box, and express their views and opinions with confidence and pride. When educational communities foster and encourage a collaborative environment where students want to strive individually, but also help others to grow and succeed, great academic achievements and rewarding personal outcomes can be achieved.
What I Will Bring to TAS:
I would like to bring my acquired knowledge and educational background to TAS and help the students realize their academic goals and to assist them with their personal development. I am passionate in the belief that education can change young lives. I look forward to working with everyone at TAS and being a part of the vision to see the students succeed and to see the school grow.
A Little Bit About My Personal Life:
I enjoy being with my wife and going out to try new food and drinks together. We go to Dong Thap when we can to spend time with family. I really enjoy walking around and meeting new people and sharing experiences together. I also enjoy playing chess, swimming and hiking.
