Where did you go to school?
I still haven’t left school! I graduated from SUNY Purchase college with a degree in psychology and history. I have a Master’s in Social Work from CUNY Hunter College and I am graduating this May with a Master’s in Education from LIU- Brooklyn. I also was really lucky and studied history at University of Stirling in Scotland for six months.
How long have you been at Halsey?
I started working at Halsey at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. This is my second year here 🙂
What would you be doing if you were not a teacher?
If I wasn’t a teacher, I would still be a social worker.
Why did you get into education?
I come from a family of educators and my way of trying to be different and express my individuality was to become a social worker. As much as I love social work, I quickly realized after mostly practicing social work in schools, that teaching is what I am passionate about. My parents were very happy about this decision.
What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?
My favorite thing about being a teacher is getting to know my students.
Any hobbies or interests that we do not know you would like to share?
I love to hike with my dog, paddle board, travel and learn about the places I visit. Catch me in Alaska salmon fishing this summer!
