I am originally from a small town in upstate New York. I attended Port Jervis High School, where I received the honor of being named valedictorian and discovered just how much I value education. I moved to New York City for college when I attended Fordham University at Rose Hill in the Bronx. I pursued a double major in English and French Language and Literature, as well as a double minor in Comparative Literature and Psychology. I was blessed with the opportunity to follow my passions through study abroad programs in both London and Paris. I absolutely love to travel and certainly miss my exciting European adventures! While home in the Bronx, my most meaningful volunteer experiences were working in a Hunts Point preschool. Through my work with young children and early literacy, I developed a love for teaching. I expanded my volunteer work in education with homework help for high school students and English tutoring for college freshmen. Upon graduation from Fordham, I joined the New York City Teaching Fellowship program and began my journey to teacher certification in Special Education and English, grades 7-12. I currently work as a 10th and 11th grade teacher at a school in Queens, where I teach French, English, and U.S. History. Studying and teaching French, I learned about the frustration students feel when struggling to understand something that might literally or figuratively seem to be in another language. I carry this understanding, lots of patience, and a passion for language into my tutoring sessions. Outside of school, I love to read, have movie nights, see as many Broadway shows as possible, and travel all over NYC and NYS seeing my lovely family and friends.
