 Teaching + Learning

Learning is core to my practice and, more importantly, to my life. I have worked in education since the age of ten. A curious fourth grader, I began volunteering in my younger brother's special education classroom. Now at 38, I have worked as an educator across various contexts: public high schools, museums, universities, libraries, and more.
