TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 3rd year teaching, first year teaching 4th grade at an urban public school in Chelsea, MA! Previously, I taught 3rd grade at a charter school, and 4th grade at a private school. Excited to have found a solid spot at my new school, and make lots of fun resources for my students (and yours) to use!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a product of summer camp, and I find that my experience being a camper, counselor, and supervisor have directly impacted my style. The most important thing is that my students feel loved, cared for, and safe in my classroom. I hope to impact them in a way that makes them want to be better people, and also have a better attitude about school and learning!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in Newton, MA and attended public school through high school. I start my college career at Lesley University, and transferred to UMass Amherst halfway through. Finally, I received my MA from Brandeis University in Elementary Education.
