I am an educator passionate about language, literature, growth mindset and youth development. My favorite thing about teaching is watching students’ progress academically as well as emotionally. I believe building confidence is just as important as building academic skills. I currently teach English as a Second a Language, however I am a licensed elementary school teacher and have had experience with all ages through my work at City Year (an education based non profit) and at YMCA Camp Minikani (where I served as a counselor and camp director). I love English and Social Studies most (specifically reading and writing in content areas) but have also loved teaching math and science! In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, meditating, doing yoga, running, and learning to play guitar. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
