I began my career in education as a 1999 corps member with Teach for America in New York City. After teaching at my placement school for five years, I came to Mott Hall III in 2004, and had the opportunity to teach the second graduating class at our school. I have taught every grade from fifth through eighth, and I have a strong passion for literacy instruction. In addition to teaching ELA to all grade levels at Mott Hall III, I also served as literacy coach, and now I am assistant principal for the sixth grade. I am so happy to be a part of such a vibrant and caring community, full of amazing individuals who all support one another to be our best! I am proud that our students consistently double and triple district averages in performance on state ELA and Math exams.
I hold a B.A. in History from Brown University and M.A. degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University, and Lehman College. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, and spending time with family.
