While a student at Bowdoin College, I completed my student teaching practicum at Richmond Middle School in Richmond, Maine, receiving my State of Maine teaching certification in May of 2001. Upon graduation, I worked at The Rectory School in Pomfret, Conn. from 2001 to 2007. In 2007, I moved to Fairfield County and began teaching sixth-grade English at Greens Farms Academy, where I have been ever since. Concurrently, I was hired as a summer intern at Choate Rosemary Hall in the summer of 2000. In 2002, I became the Director of Choate’s Young Writers’ Workshop, and I served as the Director of Summer Writing Programs from 2007 to 2013. I now take summers off so that I can spend time reading and writing. In addition to my A.B. in English and Africana Studies from Bowdoin, I also hold an M.A. in American Studies from Fairfield University.

Below, you can find a video of a speech I gave recently at GFA. Entitled “Shaken Awake,” I used the opportunity to reflect upon privilege, identity, community, and the benefits and challenges of an independent school education.
