Since leaving The King’s School I spent four years at Northwest Nazarene University (Idaho, USA) studying elementary education. This season was a real time of growth as I started a new life away from everything I knew. In summers between I had some jobs that I really enjoyed, for example, working at summer camp.
About six months ago I moved overseas to Manila, Philippines to begin as a Grade 2 teacher for missionary kids at Faith Academy. My classroom is quite diverse as I teach students from eight different nations.
