AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE

I studied English, Creative Writing, and Linguistics in at Dartmouth College, as well as Biology and French in my spare time. I completed an online MBA in the 4th cohort of Smartly University, and recently received my Master’s in Education from Vanderbilt University.   
 
I worked for four years as a high school English teacher, and currently teach 2nd and 3rd grade at an urban private school. My Master’s is in school leadership and I plan to continue my career in school administration.

UNIQUE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCES

In the middle of high school, I switched schools from the local public high school to the accelerated magnet school downtown. I had to quickly adapt to a much faster and more rigorous academic pace and adjust to a much more urban setting. I loved it!
