About Me

I am from Pennsauken, New Jersey which is located in the southern part of New Jersey, right next to Camden and Philadelphia. May of 2018 I received my Bachelors of Arts in Sociology at Wagner College where I was a Division 1 scholarship football athlete and was able to join numerous organizations during my undergrad years. June of 2018 I began working at Capital Prep Harlem Charter School as a Junior Illuminator and then moving on to an Illuminator role where I’ve had my own classroom for the last two years.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

Honing my skills. I believe I am a talented educator but I do want to refine my skills and receive proper training so I can reach my potential as an educator.

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

This teacher made school more than just a basic education for me. This teacher taught me wisdom that I have been able to translate into my life and into the lives of others that I encounter.
