I currently work as a TA in the Syracuse City School District. I am 28 years old and grew up in the Upstate New York region. I have two dogs; Lola and Ender. Some hobbies I enjoy include cooking, cleaning, taking the dogs for walks, and working out. I went to school at SUNY Oswego, and LeMoyne College. I have one younger brother who is in the army. I do not have any children so I enjoy working with them during the day.
What about the residency are you most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to working directly with a teacher while doing my coursework. Being a TA I have been around teachers for a long time, and now its finally my time to learn how to shine.
Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?
My first-grade teacher made a lasting impression on me because she cared. She gave me attention, helped me when I needed it, and got me a book for Christmas as a Christmas present. She made me feel like she was my friend. She would tell me about her kids, what she’s making for dinner, etc.
