Bio
After the completion of my Bachelor’s degree, I had the opportunity to travel internationally. My experiences in other countries started a hidden passion for languages that I was previously unaware of. I became interested in learning other languages as well as teaching English to non-native speakers. After teaching ESL in various Adult Education programs in Connecticut, I began teaching at Goodwin University in the spring of 2010 upon the completion of my Masters in TESOL.
Education

Teaching Philosophy
I believe in the power of education to transform lives. Given the right opportunity in the right environment, anyone can be inspired and find success.
