My path to teaching
After graduating magna cum laude from Boston University with a BA in English Literature and Linguistics, I completed my Master’s in English in 2009. My studies focused on the 20th-century American novel and postcolonial literature.
From 2010 to 2018, I taught writing courses in Phillips Exeter Academy’s pre-college program for grades 7 through 12. My teaching embraces Exeter’s world-famous Harkness method, which encourages students and teachers to learn collaboratively through open inquiry.
My teaching is also influenced by the Montessori philosophy of self-directed learning. I am deeply inspired by my parents — gifted teachers who taught me how to invest in every student as an individual.
Born in New Hampshire, I currently live in Boston. I’m obsessed with detective novels, purple, and dogs of all sizes.
