My educational background is extensive, culminating in a Master of Social Science with a major in International and Comparative Education, specializing in the field of multilingualism. As a graduate student, I developed professional relations between my Institution and a community of local schools that participated in my research. This experience not only gave me a unique understanding in the area of linguistics, but also provided me with an excellent background in working on a project basis with both internal and external stakeholders.
Following my degree, I worked abroad for two-and-a-half years. My position with the Department of Education at the City of Stockholm relied heavily upon my ability to successfully interpret curricula and develop learning materials to meet its goals, as well as coordinating times and locales for my own teaching. As part of an outreach organization, I was able to perfect my skills in developing and maintaining positive relations with client schools. I value this experience and believe it will prove helpful in planning, coordinating, and executing the various projects sent my way.
Upon returning to the United States last year, I accepted a one year contract at a new charter school. An important aspect of this experience has been assisting in the development, implementation, and evaluation of a new charter and its curricula, as well as developing an effective relationship with parents, students, and administrators. Beyond my daily responsibilities as a teacher, I acted as mentor to new teachers, worked to secure grants, and developed new programs within the school. I am confident in my ability to contribute positively to any team, providing both leadership and support.
Additional experiences throughout my career, including the position of Office Manager for a small law practice, and running my own business as a private tutor, have helped me develop strong organizational skills and a meticulous attention to detail. I am also well-versed in the use of computer programs, and can easily learn any programs required.
I possess excellent written English and Swedish skills, and the ability to successfully translate and edit these languages. I am a hard worker and provide service with great punctuality.
