About Me

Hello my name is Lydia. I was born in Ghana, but have lived in the Bronx New York since I was about 11 years old. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a BA in History and Political science. I looking forward to this next step in my journey.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to working with the amazing teachers and students in the residency program, as well as in the school I will be working. Also, I look forward to learning about the art of teaching and about myself .

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

I have many teachers that left a lasting impression on me. They all had two things in common: they were passionate and cared beyond the classroom. They shared, not only, the subject they taught, but their hobbies . More importantly, they pushed me.
