4th & 5th Grade Math Teacher
I firmly believe that math and science learning should be an environment for students to practice collaboration and persistence, experience great wonder and joy, and plan for and construct ways to innovate the problems that we face as a society.
I grew up in the woods and mountains of western Massachusetts. As an undergraduate at Smith College, I studied chemistry before broadening my focus to STEM education. At university and in the classroom, I focused on the development of mathematical thinking and designing universally-accessible curriculum in the classroom. During my graduate studies, I had the privilege of working at a progressive, arts-focused elementary school as a co-teacher in 4th-6th Grade math and science. As a teacher, my ultimate goal is for students to develop a growth mindset about STEM and a passion for finding patterns and discovering their world. I’m so excited to join the SFS community and play with math and science!
