School Psychologist & Student Support Coordinator
WHO AM I?
I grew up in a small town on Cape Breton Island in Eastern Canada. I began my teaching career in New York City, followed by 25 years working at international schools in the Middle east and Asia (Japan, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Vietnam). Every place I have been has had played a role in enriching my life.
MY EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY:
A school is a breeding ground the development of a thirst for knowledge and an innate desire to explore, analyze, understand, and contribute to society. In order for a school to succeed, it must be a community characterized by sincere concern for the intellectual, social, and emotional welfare of all members. I have always been driven by a passion for learning and self-improvement and awareness of the psychological and social needs and motivations of human beings, and unyielding ethical commitment to those whom I serve.
