This year will be my first year as the Math/ Science Middle School teacher for Chaya Mushka Children’s House! I love working with children and enjoy teaching Math and Science to others. Originally from New York, I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology from The City College of New York. Two years later I graduated with my Masters of Arts in Adolescent Science Education from Hunter College. In 2006 I started educating the students of NYC Public School system as a State Certified Math/ Science Middle/ High School Teacher. I later went on to become the founding staff member for the Brooklyn High School for Leadership and Community Service. Georgia became my home in 2010. Here I’ve worked with various populations of middle school students, including those of The Epstein School of Atlanta. I learned so much from my experiences thus far, I look forward to sharing it all in my new endeavor.
