B.S., Farmingdale State College
Started at The Common School:
Playing and teaching all kinds of sports, hiking, art, writing, gaming, and spending time with my loved ones.
What brought you to The Common School?
I was a teacher who had recently moved from Long Island, NY to the Springfield, MA area and was researching schools nearby to see where I could find a new home and become part of a community who shares my passion for working with children. After some searching, I came across The Common School and was immediately interested and motivated by their mission.
Tell us about a favorite teaching moment at The Common School:
Where to begin? A favorite teaching moment of mine here at The Common School was being so warmly welcomed on my first day by the E1 kids and teachers, and then proceeding to teach hockey to all the kiddos out on the snowy, slippery soccer field.
What do you like best about The Common School?
Not only do I love how the school has such a connection to the natural world and gives the kids the room to discover but also that the students are encouraged to explore topics that interest them. Plus, the smiles on the kids faces and seeing them learn and grow into their own individual each and every day!
