Grade 1 Class Teacher, English
The daughter of a State Department officer, I spent much of my childhood living and learning in east Asia before settling down in Virginia to finish school and attend college. I earned my BA in Music at the College of William and Mary where I focused on vocal performance. After graduation, I began working as an assistant teacher at a nursery school and fell in love with teaching young learners. After five years of working in preschools, I returned to school to earn my Masters in Early Childhood Education at Lesley University with a focus on arts integration in the classroom. I then moved to Brooklyn to teach kindergarten for two years before joining the English team at GSB. I love bringing music, art, and movement into academic subjects and believe that the arts are fundamental to a well-rounded education.
