After receiving the Anne Yarrington Scholarship from my high school for aspiring teachers, I enrolled in Rutgers University to pursue my studies in Education. I majored in Psychology with a concentration in early childhood development and minored in Education. I made Dean’s List throughout my academic career, was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and graduated with Honors. My background in psychology and fieldwork gave me the foundation on which I have built my teaching pedagogy.
Graduate School of Education
During my time in graduate school, I worked closely with a group of future teachers. Through this experience I learned the benefits of collaborating with passionate peers and colleagues.
