Course Development Specialist
I began my career in Education teaching at an elementary school in Emmett, Idaho. I taught fifth grade and first grade over four years. After my fourth year, I spent my summer hiking across Spain with my two younger sisters. At the end of our thirty day hike, I began my journey teaching first grade in Chengdu, China. I taught at an international school in Chengdu for four years. I started in first grade, moved to third, and finished my last year with kindergarten. During my time in China, I became a certified middle leader and was given the title Math Coach for primary teachers within the school. My role within education continued to expand and grow in the international setting. I was able to work with kids from preschool to senior high school within multiple environments. When my four years came to a close I knew I was ready for a new adventure within education. I am very excited to continue to develop my skills as an educator with the IDLA team.
