I was born and raised in the state of New Hampshire, a small state in the northeastern region of the United States.
I attended Northeastern University in Boston for my undergraduate degree, earning a Bachelor's degree in English and completing a teacher preparation program granting me licensure to teach English Language Arts to grades 5-12. I then taught English Language Arts at a school in New York for students with language-based learning disabilities. During that time, I earned a Master of Education degree in Teaching and Learning with a concentration in Literacy at the State University of New York. After completing that degree program, I accepted a job teaching English Language and Literature at the American School of Quito in Ecuador. I am happy to continue working in the field of international education at the Secondary English department at Country Day School, where I teach English 9 and English 11/12: U.S. Culture & Identity.
