As a Thai native who grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, I’ve always missed the taste of street food and fresh markets. My husband and I moved to Thailand in 2014 to teach at Nakornpayap International School and we’ve been here ever since. This is my fourth year as the College Counselor and I teach Psychology and AP Psychology to 11th and 12th grade students too. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Family Studies from Towson University’s School of Education, Maryland USA. I also earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Community Counseling from the Johns Hopkins University, USA. I am constantly learning as a teacher and that’s what I try to plant in my students: “never stop learning because no day is ever the same … EVER!”
