Currently teaches:

My passion for teaching began when I had the opportunity to teach English to Tibetan migrants in India. I saw that education was empowering and couldn't get enough of giving people that gift. I love exposing students to new concepts and ways of thinking and giving them the tools to articulate and defend their ideas.

I challenge students to think independently and analytically by asking questions – a sort of Socratic style. I like to mix up the lessons we do in class, with students being the explorers and researchers so that they discover ideas and concepts rather than me telling them.

I like to go places. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to each continent (excluding Antarctica) and used to live in Australia. Traveling is one of the best forms of education.

I came to Bullis because it’s an excellent learning environment and allows students to explore and grow in their passions. Bullis has something for everyone. It is truly a progressive, inventive place to learn and teach. Also, the students and faculty are the highest caliber I’ve come across!
