I love that classes at Eagle Hill-Greenwich are small, intimate and truly individualized to maximize growth and development for each student. Also, being a teacher at Eagle Hill is more than just a position for me, it's a lifestyle: a family-oriented culture that cares about my personal well-being as well as my professional growth as a teacher.

Why I Teach

I've always aspired to be surrounded by people who love to learn and grow. It was a natural progression in my life's journey to become a teacher. 

I started my professional career as a high school English Language Arts teacher. While this position was rewarding and an important step in my growth in the educational field, I underwent a transformation when I realized I wanted to specialize in helping students who struggle with language-based learning differences.  

With that mindset, I sought out the best graduate-level reading specialist program I could find and now dedicate my life to helping students become thoughtful, independent readers who think critically about text and information. 

It is a joy to see students overcome mental and emotional battles with themselves when they realize that they can be successful at anything they attempt. I am most inspired by my students because they teach me every day that, with a little encouragement, support and understanding, anything is possible.
