“Princeton Day School has been my home for many years. As a student, I was inspired by the teachers in the Upper School. These professionals encouraged me to be at my best in the classroom and on the basketball courts. PDS saw my love for children and encouraged me through professional development both within and outside of the school. Today, I am honored to be teaching some of our youngest students, as well as developing my love for basketball by coaching our Varsity boys team. Teaching second grade and coaching high school all under the same roof has been an incredibly rewarding experience.”

“I believe in the collaboration of students and teachers, who develop shared questions in a lively exchange that deepens understanding and builds community. We inspire each other to become more engaged readers and writers in a classroom environment that is as productive as it is lively. PDS continually encourages and supports me to create this type of classroom.”
