My husband and I have three grown children and two grandchildren. We enjoy spending time together as a family. We go camping, hiking, and have fun playing games outdoors and indoors. We all love reading, too. When our children were younger, we took them to live in Mexico for one year. They went to school and got to know their family in Mexico. We sold hamburgers and hot dogs at our own stand. I taught English at a Primary school and learned a lot about the culture of Mexico.
I have been teaching at Nahed Chapman New American Academy since it opened in 2009. I love teaching and learning with amazing children from all over the world. I consider teaching to be a great responsibility. I want children to learn reading, writing, math and all about the world where they live. I want them to respect one another and their different cultures and opinions. Teaching is a challenge and a joy. I want to keep learning about how to be the best teacher I can be.
