I am a graduate of Tufts University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English as well as a minor in History. Since graduation, I have worked as a 7th grade Reading Language Arts teacher in Dallas Texas at a newly formed public all boys school. This has provided me with great experience and insight into how students best learn and how to create culturally responsive lessons that students will engage with. I am most passionate about English, Literature, History, and Spanish. In my experience, working to prepare students for state standardized tests has had the additional benefit of helping students to discover what they enjoy reading about. This increase in intrinsic motivation to read has had an important impact on struggling students. I am dedicated towards ensuring that students are provided with an education that increases their quality of life.
In my spare time I enjoy reading short fiction, photography, skiing, coaching weightlifting, and traveling with my family.

I immensely enjoy traveling while documenting those experiences through photography. Outside of traveling, I enjoy skiing and riding bikes. One of my more consistent hobbies is reading. I prefer short fiction as well as history books about certain eras.
