Greetings. I am excited for our journey. I’m equally excited to learn more about teaching interdependence/empathy, and climate science. Teaching is my second career. I worked as a financial analyst for several years, but when my children we’re young I realized how important teaching is, so I went back to school. I have taught students in grades K-12. All of my teaching has included teaching English to students new to the US. I currently teach at a school that is 100% free breakfast, and lunch, and for students who stay after school for tutoring, or enrichment we have a supper program. My school also offers classes to parents. Parent classes are on parent empowerment, and English. I live in the town where I teach, so I often see my students when I’m out, and about.
I love to travel. I lived in the Philippines for three years. I have traveled through many parts of Mexico, and Guatemala. In December of 2016 I was lucky enough to hike in Nepal. This excited my Nepalese students and their families greatly. I also love gardening, and my dogs. I can’t wait to meet everyone, and begin to learn from, and with everyone. Annie
