Country: United States
School: Rosewood Elementary International School

I serve as the principal at Rosewood Elementary International School, a public school serving students age 5 – 11 in Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA. This is my third year in this position; highlights of my time so far include the planning and implementation of a partial French immersion program (50/50), creation of parent advisory councils conducted in multiple mother tongues focused on developing parent leaders, vertical professional development with our MYP and DP schools and implementation of a 1:1 technology program.

Prior to becoming the principal at Rosewood Elementary International School, I served as a Diploma Programme Coordinator, Extended Essay supervisior, CAS coordinator, French ab initio and French B teacher. I served on the committee to bring the Middle Years Programme to Rock Hill.

I am also the parent of two children; one in the French Immersion Primary Years Programme at Rosewood and one who has completed PYP at Rosewood and is moving into MYP.
