Tell Us about Yourself:
From 2013-2016 I worked at Lakes International Language Academy teaching Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. I worked in Talmud Torah of St. Paul for over 4 years teaching teaching K-6 and CIS courses. Currently, I am a student for a Master's of Teaching in Elementary Education at Concordia University of St. Paul. For the past two years I worked at the Minneapolis Jewish Federation as the Israel Program Specialist. I am also a professional photographer. Prior to moving to Minnesota in 2012, I lived in China for four years studying Mandarin Chinese and earning a Master’s Degree in International Chinese Education from Yunnan Normal University. I am fluent in Mandarin, English, Hebrew, Russian, and Spanish. I have traveled extensively to many countries all around the world experiencing a variety of educational systems and cultures. Right now my biggest job is to be the best mom I can be to our two beautiful children, Leo who is 5 years old and Mila who is 3 years old.
