I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from Quinnipiac University. In addition to majoring in biology at Quinnipiac I also minored in mathematics. During my senior year of high school I taught a class of first graders religious education at Saint Brigid's Parish. I greatly enjoyed teaching this class and the ability it gave me to engage students in a subject and bring them new information. I am passionate about the sciences, mathematics, English and reading. I hope to bring my joy learning new subjects and challenging myself to my students. My hobbies include reading, gardening, and occasionally cooking.
