The 2011-2012 school year will be my 14th year teaching at CDNIS. It is quite surprising how time has flown! Over the years, I have taught grades 2, 4, and 6 as well as having served as Primary Convenor and Grade 6 Convenor. Three years ago, I took a break from teaching to complete my doctoral thesis. In 2009, I returned to CDNIS to serve as the Acting Lower School Coordinator. Last year, I returned to the classroom again, teaching grade 6, a most challenging and rewarding experience. I am very much looking forward to teaching and learning with sixth graders again this year.
