As the Director of International Programming, my job is to help make your living and learning at Woodstock Academy one that is rich in opportunities and allow you to become confident and comfortable as a student. As you navigate your way in a new culture, I will be a support for you: assist you with managing your classes, talking with your teachers, exploring options for service opportunities, joining school clubs and events, and exploring and experiencing American life to its fullest.
Prior to working at Woodstock Academy, I spent five years working in a high school in Singapore where I taught English and History as well as ran a student resource support program. Just as you will be experiencing a new life while at Woodstock Academy, I also had to go through similar experiences as a foreign teacher and learn and appreciate a very different culture from my own. My five years living in Asia gave me a wonderful worldwide perspective of how important it is to become a global citizen.
