Dear BBIA Parents and Community,
It is a great pleasure to introduce myself to you before the beginning of a new academic year, during which we will have an opportunity to enjoy our time at BBIA, become acquainted and spend time together.
Let me share with you parts of my professional and personal background:
I was educated in the United States, in the Great Lakes State of Michigan. Upon graduating from Plainwell High School, I pursued my education at Western Michigan University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree – Cum Laude, majoring in English and French language and literature. I further pursued my studies by entering a Master’s Degree program in Education.
As concerns my professional career, for the past twenty years, I have been employed at Budapest’s renowned educational institutions: The American International School, the British International School, International Business School, IES-SEK Budapest, and the French School of Budapest. The positions held include teaching EAL, English, Language Arts, French, TOEFL and SAT.
Working among Budapest’s international community for so many years has benefited me with extensive experience in teaching, communications, and cross-cultural relations. Throughout the years I had the opportunity to attend and present at numerous professional development conferences organized by well-known international schools’ associations: ECIS, ELMLE, and CEESA.
It is my intention to work closely with our entire school community and devote my experience and expertise to ensure BBIA’s continuous progress and growth, as well as maintain the success and enthusiasm of all our students and staff.
Lastly, allow me to say that I am very excited to join the vibrant and inspiring BBIA’s team of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. I look very forward to meeting you all in person and having a successful, productive and exciting upcoming academic year.
