I am a Middle School History teacher, Technology Integration Specialist, and Interim Head of the Global History Department. A native of Philadelphia, PA, I started my career as a social worker counseling adjudicated youth and helping them transition into the home and school setting. A product of Philadelphia’s public schools, I began my teaching career with the School District of Philadelphia where I taught history for five years at the high school level. For the past eleven years, I have taught in independent schools. I speak Spanish fluently and have spent time living abroad in locations worldwide, including Rwanda, Mexico City, Spain, and Japan. I have a bachelor’s degree from Chestnut Hill College and a master’s degree in secondary education from St. Joseph’s University.
