I went to SUNY Geneseo which is very close to where I grew up! I grew up in a small farm town in upstate NY and didn’t move down to the city until I started working at Halsey! The town I grew up in has more cows than people!
How long have you been at Halsey?
This is my fourth year at Halsey!
I have always wanted to be a teacher. The only thing I was unsure about was what grade level I wanted to teach. Throughout high school and college I worked in a preschool and always thought I would end up as a kindergarten teacher!
Why did you get into education?
Both of my grandparents were educators and told me how rewarding the profession was. I got into education because I want to make a difference in students’ lives. Being a teacher is so much more than teaching content. I want to teach my students that with hard work they can achieve anything they put their mind to!
What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?
My favorite thing about being a teacher is getting to know my students on a more personal level! I have the most incredible students and I love learning more about them and convincing them that math is their favorite subject 🙂
Any hobbies or interests that we do not know you would like to share?
When I am not working I love to do anything outdoors! I played tennis in college and I love to play now whenever I get the chance. I also love to cook and try new recipes!
