I taught at a public high school in Newark, NJ, at a large regional high school in suburban NJ, and now at a northern NJ high school. I've taught grades 9-12 in the high school setting, and have experience in resource rooms, inclusion co-teaching, and college-prep level general education. I also teach 7th graders at a parochial weekend school and teach students aged 9-13 in a STEM enrichment program during the summer.
I focus on culturally responsive teaching, exposing students to diversity, developing empathy and critical thinking skills, and encouraging students to become active agents in their own education.

I received my B.A. in History from Goucher College, and hold a Masters in Teaching from Montclair State University. I hold NJ certifications as a Teacher of K-12 Social Studies and a Teacher of Students with Disabilities.
