This is a friendly greeting from the island nation of New Zealand - myhome country of birth. I have been in education for over a decade now -working with children, parents and educational systems from around theworld. Originally trained as a teacher in New Zealand with an extensivebackground in Literacy I moved to the United States about eight yearsago where I worked for Stafford County Public Schools as a 5th Gradeteacher. During the past three years I was the Director for the VisitingInternational Program (VIF), having an opportunity to work extensivelywith international teachers here in Prince William County and throughoutthe state of Virginia.
During the last eight years, I have and continue to work as a Volunteerfireman in Stafford County with the Falmouth Fire and Rescue Department,I love having the opportunity serve my community not only in educationbut outside it as well.
In my spare time I love to read, rock climb, run and spend time with myfamily enjoying the various seasons we have here in Virginia.
