TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm an English teacher who started in urban education through Teach for America, and have worked for ten years towards closing the achievement gap in urban communities. Most of my teaching career has been in late middle school and early high school, and I've largely worked in high-performing charter schools in New York City. Currently, I'm the Director of Curriculum and Instruction at a Title I school in Queens, New York that serves first generation students and outperforms New York City and New York state.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I value close reading, rigorous text-based questions, and alignment to the common core. I teach exclusively through authentic texts, and the vast majority of my curriculum is through novel study - I believe that by developing interest in stories, authentic discussion around ideas, and tough, rigorous questioning, students can be both engaged in big ideas and develop as readers through close reading.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching in 2017 to study independent reading. Earned a master teacher rating (or top 10% of teachers) at Democracy Prep five years in a row.
