Why do you want to be a teacher?
"I believe that educators can disrupt oppressive systems by directly supporting individuals. If education is about justice, then it is about serving people. I hope to be part of a team of educators who create classrooms where students and teachers harness the power of humility and connection to work towards a collective vision of justice for Americans of all identities.
...Perhaps each teacher picks up the pieces that we felt were most broken in our own schooling experiences, and runs with them, tries to fit them back together. For me, that’s serving and supporting LGBTQ+ students and all marginalized students through teaching robust, honest English and social studies courses."
Why did you choose to enroll in BTS as an undergraduate?
"I chose to do Bowdoin Teacher Scholars as an undergrad because I loved my field placements in earlier education courses and really saw student teaching my last semester as a good transition period between being a full-time college student and being a full-time teacher."
