I grew up in Connecticut, but moved to Austin from Chicago, Illinois, where I studied English/Creative Writing at DePaul University, in 2011. I often feel like reading and writing have saved my life, so when I came to Austin, I came to pursue a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, specifically in poetry. After taking a couple years to work, I realized that there was a great deal about school and education that didn’t sit right with me, that I wanted to change. So, I went back to the University of Texas – Austin to get my Masters of Education and studied the ways that school can be more meaningful when students have agency over their own education. I learned and am still learning so much about what school can be and I am so excited to teach Creative Writing and Co-Teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ELA!
