I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge at the International School Nido de Aguilas in Santiago, Chile. I have also served as Nido's IB Extended Essay Coordinator for the past four years. I have 19 years of classroom experience, nine of which have been teaching both High Level and Standard Level IB Economics.
Prior to moving to Chile in 2012, I spent four years at the American School of Nicaragua. Three of those years I taught high school history, one of them I spent as High School Principal. I began my teaching career in 2002 at the Atlanta Girls’ School in the United States. Prior to teaching, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the central mountains of the Dominican Republic. I am a graduate of Duke University where I studied Public Policy Studies and History.
Teaching IB Economics has been the most rewarding experience of my nineteen-year career and I would love to share a bit of what I've learned along the way. Please don't hesitate to send me an email to email@example.com if you have any questions.
Wishing you all the best out there.
Stay safe and healthy!
