I attended Umass Amherst and later transferred to Bridgewater State University for a double major in biology and elementary education. The combination of these fields enriched my understanding of science and prepared me to become an effective educator. My educational experience at both institutions has set the stage for a fulfilling career in education.
Started at The Common School:
I joined The Common School community in October of 2022. I began as a substitute teacher and tutor.
I enjoy photography, performing with my bands, and spending time in nature. Photography allows me to capture special moments and look at the world very purposefully. Performing with my band is exciting and provides me with a creative outlet.. Being in nature is a way for me to find peace and recharge, whether it’s hiking, camping, or simply enjoying the outdoors. These interests bring joy to my life and provide a healthy balance to my daily routines.
What brought you to The Common School?
After relocating to the Valley in 2022, I sought a flexible substitute teaching position near my new home. Discovering The Common School’s posting on SchoolSpring, I decided to tour the campus, and the moment I stepped foot on it, I fell in love with the environment and philosophy. The school’s warm and welcoming atmosphere, along with its commitment to education, convinced me to become part of this supportive community and pursue my passion for teaching.
