My teaching experience at Children’s Aid Society and collaborating with parents to support their children in developing socioemotional and academic skills that lay a strong foundation for their K-12 education.

When the day is done
I like spending quality time with family and friends, and I also enjoy my alone time journaling, watching shows, and taking walks outside.
