Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
I am originally from Massachusetts where I taught for a number of years and raised my three sons. As the boys left home I sought out my first overseas adventure and became a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines working as a teacher trainer. When I returned home I completed my Masters in Curriculum, continued teaching as a gifted and talented coordinator and eventually sought yet another overseas adventure which led me to the beautiful city of Budapest Hungary. That was traded four years later for the hustle and bustle of the exotic city of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. Fast forward and the lure of island life bought me to the Dominican Republic where I have spent the last five years teaching fourth grade. I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade this year, with many of my former fourth grade students.
