About Me

I come from a family of six kids. I love to go to the beach and I am a beach lifeguard in the summer. I played soccer for Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am graduating (sort of) this year with my bachelor’s in History.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to becoming a part of my school's community and starting a new chapter of my life. I am excited to learn side by side with an experienced teacher, while having more responsibility in the classroom. This residency really gives the experience of the life of an educator and would allow me to be in a more guided practice of the profession I chose.

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

I really loved a lot of my teachers so it is hard to pick just one but each of them put in the effort to connect with their me on a personal level.
