I'm a seek learner and curious teacher in constant self - improvement mode. Currently celebrating diversity, multilingualism, people, and their culture. After three years of living in Southeast Asia, and China, I'm moving to the UK to take care of my lifelong project on education: leadership and management! I dedicate this website to my boyfriend and mentor, who taught me about courage, to my 11 years old Thai student, June, from whom I learned what teaching is about, and to all my Chinese students from the Han majority and all 55 minority groups across China. May God bless your ways, in safety. A foreign language curious, human and woman, a traveler. A daydreamer!
