Cross-cultural experiences have been a common thread in my life, both domestically and internationally. I grew up in rural North Carolina and at the age of 12, moved to a suburb of NYC. I remember other students looking curiously as I chewed on tall blades of grass and wore sandals and shorts to school despite the cold weather. They were shocked with my seemingly intimate relationship with straw, that I didn't own a pair of jeans and with my strange accent.

My first international and teaching experience came about during a study abroad program in Ecuador where I taught ESL to my own high school class of 50 students because the teacher they had hired never showed up that year. Having survived that experience, the language later led me to a position here in Western Mass teaching elementary school Spanish and working as a library media specialist.

My focus was always on how to educate people (minorities and uneducated) about good health practices. I was always thinking, what as an educator should I know before teaching people. I realized that in order to reach people’s minds, I need to know how, so my work will be effective.

I have been striving to contribute to Georgian education system in many different ways over the past 8 years, whether by helping a 9th grader to succeed in her chemistry class, assisting Muskie applicants to apply to universities in State, or by developing and implementing a program for school principals. Although my first master’s degree is in biochemistry, I decided I wanted to be an educator soon after my first student received high scores on the international tests and I realized how rewarding it is to assist people in pursuing their dreams and aspirations.

When I first embarked on my academic journey, I could have hardly imagined, that one day I would end up in international education. But here I am and I can definitely state that this is the area, which is not only important or beneficial, but the one enabling me to contribute to making the world a better place to live.  I strongly believe in the power of education as not the pure transmission of knowledge but as a mechanism to build the world we all deserve and aspire to live in as human beings.
