Living out in the world makes me happy. I am teaching abroad again, in Albania, and loving it! My spirituality continues to grow as I learn about the teachings of the world in its many, many forms. I’ve made lots of great friends that share my travel bug. The more I see the many places in our world, the more I realize that we are far more alike than we are different.
Having taught and lived in Mozambique, Turkey, Taiwan, and Czech Republic has been a wonderful way to learn about the cultures, foods, dances, and many other wonderful things in our world, along with developing my teaching skills!
I can happily boast that I graduated from TEFL Worldwide Prague. I highly recommend it if you are looking for your TEFL school!!!
Before heading to Prague I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico‘s College of Education.
I aspire to be the kind of teacher that my nickname, Ms. McKahsum, requires me to be.
I am a mother of three wonderful children. I can’t believe they’re all adults now, they grow up too fast. Cliché I know, but true nonetheless.
All three are doing amazing things. They are all becoming amazing people. Through my experiences, trials, triumphs, and theatrics I hope to give them each the ability to see that they can achieve their own personal greatness. I want to give my children the world, and by my travelling in it, they can too.
Experience is the best, most honest teacher. I want to be a good learner.
I love to teach, I love to write, I love to paint, I love to garden, and sculpt, and play pretend. I write my thoughts not so much because I think they’re important, but because I don’t want to forget; I want my children to remember; I want my students to learn.
