"Though I truly love teaching, my path to becoming a math teacher is a bit different from that of most math teachers. Prior to teaching, I practiced criminal law for several years. While law school prepared me well for drafting legal documents and writing complicated briefs, it did not provide me with a career for which I had passion. Serving as a prosecutor in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office, I saw first hand the tragic results of our city's failing educational system."
