DREAMS MADE SOUND
A story about falling in and beyond dreams
Originally from Massachusetts, Leia lives life with a passion to serve others. When she was studying Literature and Education, she mentored teenagers and volunteered time to help enrich her community. For the last 5 years, this humanitarian passion has been channeled into her education career.
Her approach to teaching has been influenced by the variety of ages, backgrounds, cultures and skill levels of her students. She has taught yoga, meditation, children with special needs, students learning English, English Language Arts and Social Emotional Intelligence in The United States, Hanoi, and now Da Nang.
Leia is thrilled to be a part of the St. Nicholas community. She believes it is important to facilitate her students’ autonomy in relation to their education and life purpose. She is aware of the positive influence a teacher can have on students and takes the responsibility seriously by demonstrating integrity.
In her free time, Leia enjoys practicing yoga, reading, writing, nature, art, and eating delicious food.
