What made you want to become a teacher?

I have wanted to be a teacher for most of my life. I have always liked helping people and found that I gravitated toward tutoring others or applying for jobs that involved working with kids. I knew I wanted to teach high school but didn’t know what exactly I wanted to focus on. High school teachers that inspired me and made me love learning pushed me to choose between two subjects: Spanish and History. I ended up choosing history and here I am!

 

What is your favorite part about being a teacher here?

The people that push me to be better and to think more critically. I have been impacted by both students and colleagues who have made me a better teacher and continue to make me one every day. I have made some very close friendships that I will always carry with me.

 

What college did you go to?

I attended Northeastern University for my undergraduate degree and UConn for my Masters degree.

 

If you could be anything other than a teacher, what would you be?

A personal trainer.

 

What is one thing that students don’t know about you?

I honestly can’t think of anything, I’m a pretty open book! Most find it weird how much I hate ketchup and emus.
