In 2006, she moved to Mexico City, where she earned her Master’s Degree from the SUNY Buffalo program for International Educators. In her six years in Mexico, Anna developed and implemented the first Art program at the Early Childhood Center of the American School Foundation. There, she discovered a true passion for working with children and teachers on interdisciplinary, inquiry based art projects, and cultivated an interest in academic leadership and collaborative curriculum design. In 2012, she began work at the American International School Foundation in Freetown, Sierra Leone. There, she taught fourth and fifth grade Humanities. As Early Childhood and Primary School coordinator, she oversaw an international faculty and staff of thirty, guiding them through an extensive curriculum review and redevelopment process that culminated in a globally minded, progressive curriculum for grades preschool – 8.
