Biography

I am a 2020 Corps Member with Teach for America. Through my position in this organization, I teach 2nd grade at AF Iluminar Elementary School. Although I grew up in RI, my academic journey has been straightforward and stable, unlike that of most students in Providence. As a bi-racial woman, I am most interested in drafting culturally relevant and thoughtful curricula for all grades, but specifically at the elementary level. As a teacher, I am concerned with making the profession more sustainable and meaningful for new teachers. I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge and also my impact within the Providence and RI education community.
