Hi, my name is Miriam Hurdle. I grew up in Hong Kong where I went to college and worked for five years before coming to the United States. While in Hong Kong, I taught Chinese as a Second Language in Hong Kong Baptist University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong for three years. I was also the Director of the Children’s Department at the Asian Outreach where she published four Chinese Children’s books.
I came to the United States for my graduate studies. I received my master’s degrees in Christian Ministry from Portland Seminary, Counseling from Seattle Pacific University, and Education Administration from California State University, Los Angles. After teaching in California public school for fifteen years, I was promoted to a school district administrative position. I went on to do the postgraduate studies and earned my Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from La Verne University in California.
I continued in my administrative position for ten years before retirement. In my retired life, I enjoy doing volunteer counseling, reading, writing, blogging, singing, drawing, watercolor painting, gardening, photographing and traveling.
I’m survived with melanoma cancer and am in remission since 2009.
