This is my education background: Girls Latin School-Boston, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Post-Graduate Studies – Boston University
What I do outside Star Academy: I love spending time with my cherished family and friends. Hiking, bicycling, photography, gardening and traveling (pre-pandemic) are some of my most enjoyed activities. I am actively involved in enhancing U.S. education by advocating for favorable legislative policies as a School Committee member on a regional, state and federal level. As a coach, judge and international evaluator in the Future Problem Solving International Program, I work with students and educators from around the world by teaching and promoting 21st Century Skills.
Teaching Mantra: My philosophy in reaching children is to be kind, supportive and understanding while inspiring them to thrive, develop a lifelong love of learning and be socially/emotionally well. I use differentiated instruction to develop each individual’s potential. Teaching in a hybrid model during the pandemic, I was mindful of the added stresses on my students and encouraged flexibility and resiliency while fostering a “joie de vivre.” Creative and critical thinking, communication and collaboration are some of the many important skills that I utilize in my pedagogy.
