Having been born in Taiwan, living my early years on both coasts of the United States before moving to Panama, “where I am from” does not have a simple answer. But, Panama has been my home now for many years!
San Diego State University and Florida State University provided me opportunities to earn my undergraduate degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude from FSU. My graduate studies continued at Nova Southeastern, earning a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English. Continuous learning motivates me to seek opportunities and to always improve.
For more than 26 years, elementary classrooms in the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) and Balboa Academy in Panama have been my classes of choice. The last three years I have been the Elementary Principal.
My husband and I are proud to have had our three children attend Balboa Academy which has prepared them well for their future endeavors. I believe in helping children find a love and curiosity in learning that will last them a lifetime and help make the world a better place.
