About

I am a teacher from Eastern Kentucky. I have been offered the incredible opportunity to teach at the Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Biology and Chemistry in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan. I couldn’t be more excited about this journey. On this site I will document this adventure and keep family, friends, and followers informed about the many exciting new experiences to come.

I worked in the business world (restaurant management, insurance, accounting, and other areas) in the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky area before selling almost everything I owned and moving to Morehead, KY to attend graduate school and become an educator. I have worked for 8 years as an English/Arts and Humanities teacher.

A friend went to Abu Dhabi to teach. I was trying to get a job teaching in a school in her network when this opportunity in Kazakhstan was posted. After phone interviews, a Skype interview, emails, tons of paperwork, and several verifications of documentation, I will be teaching in Pavlodar for the 2014-2015 school year. So once again, I have sold everything and will start all over again.

I have lived in several cities in Kentucky and a few places in Ohio. I have traveled to several places in the US and Canada. This is my first overseas experience.

When I am not working with my students or on classroom projects, I read, knit, enjoy movies, and most types of the arts. I love museums, opera, and the circus.

I hope that you enjoy sharing this experience with me.

    Angela, I currently am completing my third year as a principal for ADEC in Abu Dhabi. I am very bitten by the international bug, so I will follow your blog to learn as much as I can about Kazakhstan.
