Teacher - Alumni
My parents are immigrants from the Dominican Republic. They did not attend college and aren't proficient in English. In high school, I had to navigate the college process on my own. The day that I received my acceptance letter from Binghamton, was the best day ever! During my summers in undergrad, I was a camp counselor and I loved it! During my junior year at Bing, I was an intern at Binghamton High School where I shadowed and assisted an English teacher. I loved English, but after that semester I knew that elementary / middle school was more my jam. As I was deciding on graduate school and teaching, I had a lot of questions, but felt as if there wasn't anyone to answer them. My first year of teaching was the 2020-2021 school year in the middle of the pandemic. It was intense, but I learned a lot. In my free time I like to play sims, cuddle my dog and watch movies with my girlfriend.
