Hi, I’m April Soo
Originally from Ontario, Canada, I began my teaching career in 2015 as a high school mathematics teacher in Kazakhstan.
I started my first blog in 2014 as a way to document my teaching journey, but a lot has changed since then. I’ve worked in South Korea, China, Qatar, and am currently in Thailand.

I am still learning, and if you’re interested in learning together I’d love to connect with you. Feel free to sign up for new posts in your inbox.

My personal feelings towards email in general are that they are not conducive to deep…Keep reading
