“I was drawn to working with students with math and learning all of the different ways to approach a topic. Outside of the classroom, I like to stay active by participating in kickball, ultimate frisbee, and trivia nights. I am excited to have the opportunity to join the Scarsdale community and am looking forward to a great school year!”

“I chose to become a teacher after being inspired by my teachers! I saw how they aided and helped so many students in all aspects of their lives, not just academically, and I was inspired to do the same for others. Outside of the classroom, I love to spend time with family and friends doing anything outdoors! I love to hike, kayak, camp, anything that gets me outside!”
