Internationally minded means that you are open-minded to differences.

To me, being internationally minded means being open-minded to differences and having the ability to accept ideas that are different from yours.

I was born in New Jersey and lived there till I was six. I then moved to Tokyo and went to an international school for elementary school and middle school. After finishing middle school, I moved back to the United States and stayed there for about 10 years, completing high school and university in Connecticut and Boston.

I started teaching at Gymboree Play & Music in 2010 and stayed with them for four years. This is when my passion for teaching grew and I switched my career from graphic design to education. After Gymboree, I taught P.E. at several International preschools in Tokyo and Saitama for a year. This experience convinced me to work full time at a preschool, which is where I am now. This will be my sixth year at Summerhill.
