I am thrilled to be entering my second year of working at DCI as an English teacher! Previously, I taught 6th grade English with KIPP DC after graduating from Georgetown University. The values of DCI are very close to my heart, since I was raised in an international household. I grew up in Houston, Texas, and then moved to London, England with my family and spent my high school years there at an international school. I thoroughly enjoyed taking classes in the IB Diploma, and traveling across Europe to compete against other international schools in sports. My international experiences continued in college, when I studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile. I’m proficient in Spanish through my 10 years of studying it and also speak Italian with my father, who immigrated from Italy. Outside of school, I enjoy running, traveling, and any crazy new recipe I can get my hands on!
