The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

Being part of a strong internationally-minded community that embraces the importance of providing a holistic education through the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.


Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

Having the opportunity to work with a diverse student body.


A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

Walking into my classroom for the first time in a community and country that I have been away from for the past 23 years.


My Favorite Book:

"The Catcher and the Rye" by J.D. Salinger

Often times, the best way we can help those in need is as simple as holding their hand.
