      Growing up in the United States, I constantly heard stories from my parents and grandparents about their lives all around the world in countries such as England, Iceland, Scotland, Greece, and Hungary. It was exciting, it was beautiful, and I wanted to have those experiences myself. These incredible tales pushed me to look for opportunities to teach abroad. I am very happy I found this opportunity to work in Budapest with BGC and to learn more about Hungarian culture.

      I received my Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus on Early Childhood Education and had a second major in Music with a focus on Voice at Salem State University. I also received my Master of Education in Early Childhood Education and received a second license in Moderate Disabilities at Salem State University. My schooling at Salem State University focused on student-centered learning that was engaging and authentic for children. What drew me to the BGC program was their focus on student-centered learning that focused on how children learn: through play. I am very excited to be teaching in a program that aligns with my philosophy of education.
