My motivation to become a teacher has been based upon the fact that I want to make a difference in the lives of young people, who are truly the world’s most valuable resource. Their natural potential, innovation, imagination, and creativity cannot be imitated; they make life fun and exciting! I want to encourage my students to be lifelong learners and critical thinkers who approach challenges with tenacity and grit.
I am from Connecticut, a small state in the northeastern United States. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Writing and Literature from Emmanuel College and am completing an extended thesis project for a Master of Science Degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Central Connecticut State University. I also hold plural teaching licensure in TESOL, Secondary English, and Bilingual Education for Adults.
My interests outside of teaching include dancing, writing, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family. I could not be more excited to share my life and experiences with my students and colleagues as I begin my new adventure at The International School!
