Q & A with Ms. Ward

Q & A Image



I went to New York University for my Bachelor’s degree and the University of Pennsylvania for my Master’s degree. I came back to New York as soon as I was done with my Master’s; I missed the city way too much!

This is my 10th year at Halsey!

If I wasn’t a teacher, I’d probably be involved in Educational Policy. I’m all about bringing teacher and student voices to the forefront of policy change. Or, my DREAM job: the female version of Guy Fieri (without the bleached hair).

I always knew I wanted to work with children and youth in some capacity. I also really love to learn new things. Put those together, and here I am!

My favorite thing about being teacher is forming relationships with my students through conversations and curriculum that brings their lived experiences into the classroom.

I live for live music, especially brass, funk, and soul. Few things make me happier. I can’t wait to get back to shows!
