This will be my seventh year teaching in Riverwood Elementary. I've had the privilege of having a wonderful group of children to work with, who have all left an indelible impression on my life. I'm looking forward to the upcoming year!
I was born in Singapore and completed my LLB in Nottingham, UK where I lived for 4 years. I practiced law in Singapore before moving to the US twelve years ago when my husband's job brought him to this part of the world. I began my foray into teaching as a substitute teacher. Being in the classroom made me realize that teaching special education in particular was my passion; and that what I really wanted to do was to make a difference in the lives of the wonderful children that I teach. I completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching in December 2014.
I’ve been happily married to my best friend and we'll celebrate our 20th anniversary this year. I have 2 amazing children - my daughter is a senior in high school and my son is a freshman in UNC Chapel Hill. My extended family consists of 2 1/2 dogs, 2 cats, and a bearded dragon.
