I am a certified social studies and math teacher at the School of the Future in the School District of Philadelphia. I also instruct data analysis courses at Rutgers University, School of Social Work. I'm extremely curious about how the world works, I'm passionate about teaching, and I care deeply about all students. Before teaching at School of the Future, I researched topics related to poverty, inequality, and the ways in which neighborhood environments influence children’s learning and development. I earned my PhD in Social Work and MSW in Nonprofit and Public Management from Rutgers University, my ME.D. in Secondary Education from Temple University, and my B.A. in Political Science from Brandeis University.
