About Me

I grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts, where, thankfully, I didn’t pick up too much of a Boston accent. I moved down to New York for college at Hofstra University (although I will always be a Red Sox fan!) where I studied math and education with a minor in Japanese language and culture. I decided to put my Japanese skills to the test after graduation and moved to Kitakyushu, Japan (about 45 minutes south of Hiroshima). I taught English both in school and private tutoring there during the day and sang with a band on the weekends. It was an amazing experience, and I am excited to be able to bring my different teaching background to ECA.

I knew after a few years that it was time to come home. Deciding to try a new place yet again, I settled in Denver where I am excited to be making a real home for myself.

Why I Teach

Ever since What do you want to be? was asked of me as a child, my answer was always teacher. In 3rd grade I was visiting and reading to the kindergartners. By the time I was a senior in high school, I had a deal with my math teacher to come in during my free blocks to observe and help run small lessons. My love for teaching only grew when I dived more in depth with my studies in college.

My passion for teaching was initially inspired by my aunt and helped along by my high school math and physics teachers. I love helping people understand new ideas and new perspectives. I also love when the students surprise me with new ideas I’d never thought of before. Teaching for me is incredibly rewarding, and helping students is why I am so happy to be a teacher.
