About Me

I attended Suffolk University in Boston for my undergrad, majored in psychology! After graduation, I spent a year teaching English in Seoul, Korea

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

Definitely gaining hands on classroom experience

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

My college professor for a class on culturally responsive education was one of my all time favorite teachers. She was warm, welcoming, and engaging in her classes. Not only did she inspire me to be a better student, but she was my inspiration to teach in Korea. She had taught there while she was in her twenties and pushed me to do the same.
