I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. I attended Hendrix College for my undergraduate degree and majored in History. After college I worked as an admission counselor for a year and in a Headstart classroom in Omaha, Nebraska for a year before joining Teach For America. Teach for America brought me to New York and I spent the last two years working for the Children’s Aid Society as a Universal Preschool Teacher. I finished my Masters in Early Childhood Education from Hunter College this past summer and am very excited to start my first year here at Brilla College Prep.
