Laura Ottoni

Education: Bachelor in Psychology at Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo
Previous work experience: Before coming to Prospect Hill, I have worked for 9 years in different settings by combining Psychology and Education. I have worked at a non-profit organization, at an early-childhood school, and at a psychological support service always supporting children and their families through their personal, educational, and emotional journeys.
Hobbies and interests: I love Brazilian music though I am not very skilled at playing any musical instruments. I also like to read books, listen to podcasts, and go hiking with my husband on the weekends.
Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: I have always believed in building a strong community and engaging families in school/educational matters in order to provide the best possible educational experiences to all children. I also believe in Education as a powerful tool to fight social injustice. I choose to work at PHA because the school's mission and values are deeply aligned with these too personal core beliefs.
