Hi there! I am from Silverton, Oregon. It is a small town located near Salem, Oregon, and is famous for its waterfalls. I received my bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Social Sciences and my master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Portland State University. I love teaching! I have taught English at University of Portland and at TIUA. Additionally, I taught English in Tokorozawa, Japan, for two years and in Singapore for one year. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, listening to music, reading, watching television, cooking, and learning about different cultures. Let’s learn together!
