In Her Words
After leaving GSA in 1999, I went to The University of Maine with thoughts of becoming an actress. After one year in the theater program, I changed majors to Political Science after taking a course on the Constitution and falling in love with the law. After graduating, I did some temporary work at a law firm and a progressive school in New York City. I fell in love with the idea of progressive education and decided to go back to school to become a teacher.
I have spent my career combining my love for politics, history, and progressive education, to find innovative techniques that will help bring an otherwise “boring” subject to life for my students. I am beyond excited to be back at GSA!
For fun, I enjoy taking my yellow lab, Clarity, for walks, singing, reading, listening to podcasts, and baking.
