Born and raised in the DC area, I graduated from Georgetown Prep and The University of Maryland, College Park with bachelor's degrees in secondary education and history. After Maryland, I worked in Montgomery County Public Schools as a social studies teacher at Redland Middle School. Next, I moved to San Jose, Costa Rica where I studied Spanish while living with a local family. I also earned my certification to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) during this time, and later taught business English to adults in San Jose. Recently, I returned to the area after two years living in Medellin, Colombia where I taught English at La Universidad Catolica de Oriente.

I believe that providing positive reinforcement and encouragement are essential to students' growth and success, but I also have high expectations for my students and want them to reach their full potential. In addition to helping students with specific subjects, I also like to teach them to become more independent by showing them them proper study habits and organizational and time management skills.

I think the use of technology is a critical component of education today, and try to incorporate it in to my classes. I also believe that students should enjoy class so I plan accordingly.
