Before joining CMS in 2016, I worked at Nagoya International School in Japan as the International Baccalaureate, primary school curriculum coordinator.
I chose to work at CMS because I could see that the school had a deep belief in developing natural curiosity and intrinsic motivation in their students.
My role is to support teachers and the Principal as the part time Deputy Principal, and Cycle 3 students as a part time classroom teacher. I love assisting in the development and implementation of curriculum that is hands on, leads to deeper ideas and understandings, and naturally engages and excites students. I find that both my roles allow me to engage in this type of work.
I am passionate about playful and gameful learning and the use of self-determination theory that encourages student confidence and a willingness to explore unfamiliar concepts with enthusiasm.
