I am Norwegian-Canadian, however I feel more like a citizen of the world. I’ve lived/worked across five continents, studying and teaching: ESL, Outdoor Education, Leadership, Humanities and Geography, English Literature and coached/led a variety of sports. In addition to travelling, my hobbies include several sports, such as basketball, snowboarding and mountain biking, as well as playing strategy board games and reading current events and academic articles. I also like to cook healthy and spicy meals.I love the teaching profession because I enjoy building relationships with my students and helping them grow emotionally and intellectually. I also enjoy being a lifelong learner through continuous reading and travelling, as well as working in a field which allows me to be active. I am thrilled to join SISD, a school that focuses on progressive 21st Century teaching and student-centred, holistic learning. I hope to bring my enthusiasm, experience and creativity into lessons in order to foster a love of learning and confidence for risk-taking.
