International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

I am from a small mountain town in Colorado, USA, and attended a small elementary school and graduated from a larger high school. I received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education from Grove City College in Pennsylvania in 2016. I came to China a few months after graduation and taught at an international school in Shenyang for a year. I came to CDIS in 2017 to teach 5th grade. I am teaching 5th grade again!

I love to bake cookies and breads, knit, read historical fiction, and practice yoga. I am excited to work with a great team here and teach students who are energetic and excited to learn.
