For the last five years I have been working in the youth development field managing outdoor education programs and facilities for a large non-profit organization. While completing this work I had the opportunity to plan and implement a variety of outdoor and ecology based experiential education opportunities for youth from all over New England!
Prior to that experience I completed my Master’s of Arts from Assumption College in School Counseling and hold a MA License as a School Counselor. I also earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Elementary Education from Saint Anselm College. I thoroughly enjoyed both Catholic institutions and I am excited to have the opportunity to teach in a Catholic school.
In my classroom students will learn to think critically about the world around them. They will learn to discover and explore the physical world through scientific study while investigating their faith. My goal as an instructor is to challenge my students to seek an understand.
In a more practical sense, we will be focusing on various scientific areas of study including ecology, biology, physics, chemistry, and earth science. In each are we’ll focus on the foundation needed to excel in higher grade levels. In religion we will review church history through the eyes of the saints and develop a deeper understanding of the sacraments of the Catholic Church.
I enjoy the outdoors! I once spent 14 days living in a tent and backpacking a long distance trail. I typically spend my summers outdoors working in outdoor education/recreation programs.
