Hailing from a suburban town 20 minutes north of Boston, I graduated in 2011 from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and majored in Mathematics. I always had an interest in teaching and found Teach for America to be a great opportunity to explore that desire. After teaching Physics and Chemistry for two years in St. John Parish, I felt the need to continue to improve as an educator and really wanted a program that offered great flexibility and maximized the amount of time spent in class. This program at SUNY Binghamton has exceeded my expectations, and I am always impressed by the eagerness of every student in the cohort to grow professionally.

My passion has always been in the field of education, particularly in under-resourced areas. I earned my B.A. in History from California State University, Fullerton. Upon graduation, I moved to New Orleans in 2011 as a Teach for America corps member. I have been teaching outside of the city for the past three years as a lower elementary Special Education teacher. After completing my credentials through the New Teacher's Project, I felt that there was still much more to learn. For this reason, I applied to Binghamton University's Masters program in Education. Binghamton's program has transformed my teaching practices and theories. Working with professors from a variety of backgrounds has provided me with a deeper conceptual understanding of the purpose of teaching and the best methodologies. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this innovative program.

I am proud to say Binghamton University is my alma mater. I graduated from Binghamton in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Accountancy. I realized my love for education and joined Teach for America in New Orleans. I firmly believe that every child could learn and wanted to see that happen in New Orleans. I've taught both fifth and third grade in rural Louisiana. During this time I knew I wanted to further my education and heard about Binghamton's masters program. It has everything I wanted, a great education at a great price. There are amazing professors that are helpful and accommodating. I've had a great graduate and undergraduate experience with Binghamton University.

I double majored in Psychology and Philosophy with a minor in Spanish at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. Teach For America brought me to New Orleans as an English teacher, and I have taught English I and English II in Orleans Parish for the past two and a half years. The Binghamton program has been a wonderful academic experience as it has paired the rigor of a fine institution with pacing a working teacher can manage. I have appreciated the responsiveness of the faculty and staff even though they are 1,400 miles away! One of the standout parts of the program is the educational breadth of the professors. I am happy to see a mix of researchers, historians, and retired public school educators working together with the teachers of New Orleans.
