About Me

I am 21 years old, from Syracuse, NY. I just graduated from SUNY Cortland with a BS in Biological Sciences. I was also a 4-year member of the lacrosse team at Cortland. I have wanted to be a teacher most of my life and I have subbed at Liverpool Central Schools along with working at a daycare.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

Probably being in the classroom everyday. I am so excited to learn in a hands-on way and connect with all of the students, faculty, and fellow residents!

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

She made her classroom a very safe environment and somewhere that all students wanted to be at all times of day. She also made learning fun, with fun songs and games that still stick with me to this day.
