I graduated from Connecticut College in 2009 with a Bachelors in Economics and International Relations, and a minor in Math. After graduating, I worked as an Analyst in Boston. Although, I enjoyed the competitiveness of my job, my heart has always been in education. My experience with the Big Brother and Big Sister program convinced me to make the transition and then, I applied for Teach for America. I will be joining the corps in Las Vegas, Nevada, as a middle school Math teacher. In the meantime, I am tutoring students to get exposure to students' learning and effective teaching.
Since I have already begun the process of becoming a teacher, I have also passed some of the competency exams: CBEST, CSET 1 (Algebra 1 and 2), Praxis 1, Praxis 2 (Middle School Math).
