I am a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native who moved to Massachusetts to pursue a degree in Elementary Education from Boston University. After working in Newton as a special education aide, I joined Boston Public Schools in 2017 as a STEM teacher at the Samuel Adams Elementary School in East Boston. I simultaneously completed an online Master's degree program in Mathematics Education from Lesley University. During the 2019- 2020 school year, I started working as an elementary STEM teacher at the Donald McKay K-8 School, which is also located in East Boston. I am passionate about teaching engineering, computer science, and digital citizenship to elementary-aged children.
