As a child of United States Marine, Jaime travelled across America 5 times before she was 5 years old. She experienced kindergarten instruction in three world languages (English, American Sign Language and Vietnamese). As she heard the US propaganda about the evils of the USSR, she wanted to go to Moscow to see if the children were all that “evil.” The love of international affairs and world languages began to develop then.
During high school, Jaime has the opportunity to host 18 exchange students in her home and the opportunity to be an exchange student to Hamburg, Germany.
Many years later, after completing a Bachelors Degree in International Relations with emphases in Russian and international development, Jaime found her true love of teaching. After teaching middle school social studies in the South Bronx, Mrs. Dubei pursued opening a new school in conjunction with The College Board.
She is incredibly excited to be serving students in the Jamaica, Queens area.
