About Me

SUBJECTS

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

I believe the purpose of education is to nurture students’ relationships with their immediate community while forging meaningful connections to their broader social context to facilitate students’ construction of a cohesive and empowered personal identity.

The role of the teacher is a natural extension of this mission, defining the heart of practice as building genuine connections with students, between a community of students, and ultimately between students and relevant, authentic curriculum in a way that directs them both outward and reflectively inward.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I hold a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree from Dartmouth College with a double major in History and Religion. I obtained a Masters of Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education with a concentration in a special studies program that enabled me to include coursework in policy, school reform, counseling, literacy, adolescent development, and curriculum and instruction.

The following year I earned a Masters of Education in Teaching (Secondary Education) and my teaching certification (secondary education) in History/Social Sciences. I have just been accepted into a doctoral program at the University of Washington for School Psychology and will potentially begin this fall.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I served as a volunteer peer educator in a rural village in Tanzania where I taught reproductive health and life skills to primary and secondary students, as well as out of school youth. Following, I was an in-house oncall substitute teacher for a K-4 charter school in Brooklyn, NY. I then served as an Americorps members for the Quileute Tribal School in WA where I tutored K-12 students individually and in small groups, as well as planned and implemented English and History units for a 9-12 classroom.

As part of my teacher education program at Stanford, I student taught a 7th grade summer school class and co-taught a 10th grade Humanities class for the academic year. For the last year and a half, I have worked at the Sanford School Department to create standards-based service-learning curriculum with teachers and frequently teach some parts of the units in their classrooms.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

I love all things outdoors and am always seeking out new trails to hike, snowshoe, or X-C ski. I am also an avid reader. In college, I was part of the varsity sailing team, something I still try to do every summer!
