I just finished my 10th year of teaching! I spent a few years in South Korea and Switzerland teaching English, and the rest here in NYC teaching young children. I currently work with toddlers at a Montessori school and also teach an after-school music class that I designed, focusing on musicians from before these kids' time.
No awards for teaching, other than the honor of working with young minds!:) I did win prize money in a songwriting contest for my children's song "Everybody's Different", which I am working on adapting into a children's book. Listen to the song here: https://soundcloud.com/26songs/everybodys-different
Public school through 10th grade, then boarding school for two years. BA in linguistics from Pomona College. MA in early childhood education from New York University. AMS Montessori credential from West Side Montessori School (Primary/3-6 years).
