Education: Smith College, BA in Engineering & Japanese; High Meadows Graduate School of Teaching and Learning, M.Ed
 
Previous work experience: I was a student teacher at Natick High School before coming to PHA. Recently, I have worked on after-school programs like The Calculus Project and The Young People's Project Math Playbook alongside students from Somerville High School, PAUS, and CSUS. I was also a STEM Tutor and Mentor for Saint Paul Public Schools in Minnesota, which is the same school district that I attended K-12.
 
Hobbies and interests: STEM education and outreach, writing and calligraphy, cooking Vietnamese food, learning about different cultures and languages, watching anime and k-dramas!
 
Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: I chose to work at Prospect Hill Academy because of how the school promotes such a strongly collaborative and innovative learning environment for all members of the community--among students, families, and staff. I'm so excited to be at a place where everyone is so open to learning together and from each other to ensure that every scholar is successful.
