About: I have been working with youth for over a decade in a wide range of roles, including running summer camp, POD teaching, working and planning high school academic summer programs for Duke, teaching and tutoring at the college level, and working at a residential school both working with students as a paraprofessional and occasional teacher as well as organizing summer programming and tracking testing and student progress. I believe firmly that education is a curiosity-first project and that listening to kids’ interest and allowing exploration is vital to learning. While learning online, it is necessary to follow the program, however, I have found that the small moments of listening and communicating help connect kids to what they are learning and that encouraging their curiosity opens the doors to wider learning. My experiences have demanded organization and flexibility as well as communication. I have the skills and attention to detail to make sure everything is completed while still maintaining a calm and creative learning and living space.
