My self-summary
I consider myself a fun and outgoing person who is also pretty down to earth. I always like to keep busy, whether I'm enjoying the company of family and friends or devoting time to my job. I can be content with a night out bar hopping with girlfriends or hanging out in a coffee shop working on lesson plans. I also recently developed an interest in traveling. I studied abroad in Mallorca, Spain as a graduate student and it definitely sparked the travel bug in me. I like to try out new restaurants in the area, take day trips to NYC, read, watch movies, and spend time at the beach during the summer as well. Moreover, I am very ambitious and driven- I put my all into basically everything that I do. I am especially eager to progress through my career in education.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently teaching 7th grade math in Newark. I developed an interest in urban education during college. As an undergrad, I completed my student teaching in Trenton and also participated in community service with children in the city, both of which I enjoyed. My first year teaching was more difficult than I ever could have imagined, but my second year has been very rewarding thus far.
I’m really good at
I'm good at making small talk. I hate those awkward silences!
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to notice that I'm kind and genuine when they first meet me. I've also been told that I have a nice smile :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jodi Picoult is my favorite author and I'm also a sucker for realistic fiction novels with a romantic twist. I read a lot of teaching books to stay current in my field too. As for movies and tv shows, I love chick flicks, Sweet Home Alabama being one of my favorites, and I'm a Big Bang Theory and Modern Family fan. As far as music, I have been into country lately! When it comes to food, pasta dishes are my favorite given my Italian background, but I'm open to all types of meals.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've been thinking about what I hope to experience in my lifetime- I don't want to settle for mediocrity. I think a lot about how I can be the best teacher for my students as well.
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend my Friday nights either out with friends at a local bar or relaxing at home for a more low key evening.
