You don't have to do it alone.
"I would love to share what I’ve learned from experience, from mistakes made, and from working with thousands of students over the years."
Are you new to teaching IB Economics this year? Or maybe you’re looking for someone to meet with on a regular basis to get new ideas on lesson plans, or new writing strategies for students, or maybe just another perspective on your teaching? If so, I would love to work with you to help expand your craft of teaching.
This one-on-one program can be set up to meet your individual needs and time constraints. The idea is that we partner up around your needs as a teacher moving through the curriculum. We would meet one-on-one eight different times throughout the semester via Zoom to collaborate with one another.
After 20 years in the classroom, I remember sharply those key people along the way that provided me with little golden nuggets that transformed a lesson, a unit, or even altered my view on teaching. I would love to share what I’ve learned from experience, from mistakes made, and from working with thousands of kids over the years.
I would love to help you, especially if you are starting your journey through IB Economics for the first time. To get started, all you need to do is schedule a free meeting initial meeting.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge in Santiago, Chile. I have also served as the IB Extended Essay Coordinator. I have 20 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 twenty-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!
