After graduating with honors from Wesleyan University, I joinedTeach for America as a corps member. I spent four years teaching 8th and 9th grade reading in inner-city schools in Chicago and for three of those years I taught at an Expeditionary Learning school. After Chicago, I taught 6th grade humanities for two years in an international school in Brazil. I am currently a teaching fellow of general and organic chemistry at Harvard University and have spent two years tutoring students in improving their executive functioning skills.
I'm a guide on the side, not a sage on the stage. I enjoy crafting learning experiences that help students shift their perspectives, open their minds and grow.
