I hold a BA in Comparative Literature as well as an MAT in Secondary English Education, both from Brown University. Prior to joining the team at DCI, I taught for seven years at an IB World School in Prince George's County, Maryland, where I served in a variety of roles to support the success of our students in the IB Diploma Programme. At DCI, I will be teaching DP English Language and Literature, along with Theory of Knowledge (TOK), a two-year course which challenges DP students to question the foundations of their knowledge in subjects like history, mathematics, natural sciences and the arts. As a new faculty member at DCI, I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues to guide our high school students through their transition from MYP into DP and CP courses. Outside of the classroom, I consider myself an amateur film buff (as a native of Baltimore, I’m particularly fond of films by John Waters), and I can be found at my neighborhood movie theater most weekends. I am also an aspiring translator of Spanish-language poetry; I studied abroad in Argentina during my college years and collaborated with the Uruguayan poet Melisa Machado to translate her works into English as part of my senior thesis at Brown.
