I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA before relocating to Boston for college. After graduating from Wellesley College in 2017, I moved to Memphis to begin my career in the classroom. Over the past five years, I have worked as a classroom teacher, student success coach, as well as an academic and behavioral specialist. In 2020, I earned a master's degree in Urban Education from Memphis Teacher Residency and Union University and began working as a fifth grade ELA teacher in Memphis-Shelby County Schools. In the summer of 2022, I will begin courses to become a reading specialist with Memphis Teacher Residency and Christian Brothers University. My passion in the classroom is connecting class content to current events and projects that allow students to explore their own interests. Outside of school, I love cooking, Crossfit, and spending time with friends.
