I've taught 8th grade science at a high-performing middle school for the past five years. My greatest passion is making science accessible, especially when it can seem confusing and intimidating. I love activating students' natural curiosity and inquiry, and using that to build confidence in and mastery of a wide variety of academic topics.
I graduated from Yale University with a double major in Environmental Studies and International Studies, and I love the way science and real-world issues can interact. Part of my interest in the environment comes from my love of being outdoors, and I am an avid rower and bicyclist. I also greatly enjoy growing vegetables and playing basketball.
