About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Education
Occupation Middle School Teacher
Location Massachusetts, United States
Introduction I dream big, but I have no idea where I will end up. I am a middle school science teacher, but I want to go back to school. I am interested in the broader field of education and the possibilities of alternative education. I am also an artist. I design and build furniture from recycled materials and play around with other forms of mixed media art. On the horizon is traveling, starting a school, and building a dream house that is disguised as a giant art installation.
