Expérience d'enseignement: Present - ESL Teacher in South Korea, Busan MOE.
I teach elementary aged school children english, with an emphasis on using music, crafts, and fun games as a way to get them excited about the language.
November 2014 - ESL Teacher at International TEFL Academy
As part of my TEFL coursework I had to work together with my colleagues to construct logical lesson schedules and lead 10 hours worth of ESL classes on my own with a wide range of adult ESL learners.
August 2012 to May 2014 - Graduate Assistant at the University of Wyoming
As a graduate assistant I helped teach classes in the music department ranging from theory and flute practice to history and aural skills. While here I also helped some international students edit their theses and work on their english writing and speaking abilities.
Intérêts: I am a classically trained orchestral musician, so I have a strong background in music topics such as music theory, music history, and anything related to the flute (practice, pedagogy, performance, etc.).
I'm passionate about being active - I practice yoga daily, love to be outside hiking, doing via ferratas, skiing in the winter, running in the summer, and anything else that gets me moving and outside in the fresh air with friends. I recently went on a trip to Northern India where I trekked through the Ladakh region and loved it!
My background in philosophy has affected me as well. I enjoy talking about subjects that don't often get brought up in today's world. I like to hear about different worldviews and engage in conversation with people who have different ideas than my own.
But most importantly I am an outgoing, happy person who is easy to talk to and get a long with.
