I earned my B.A. in Literature and Justice, Law, & Criminology from American University in Washington, D.C., as well as a semester abroad at the University of Edinburgh. While in D.C., I interned in political finance before moving to Kentucky for a 2020 Senate campaign immediately after graduation. Upon returning to Buffalo post-election, I took an opportunity to teach at a local Waldorf-based preschool which ignited my passion for elementary education. I hope to foster a lifelong love for learning, especially through engaging with music, art, and literature. I am invested in creating a learning space that accommodates the diverse perspectives and personalities of every little human that walks into a classroom. I love Charlotte Brontë, espresso, 70's glam rock, and Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
