Experience

I believe in teaching through embracing the world and people around us. I have taken my own education outside of the classroom and into the community where I have learned to be an advocate for teaching diversity. I have experience working in a variety of classrooms and communities. I was able to spend one year in Russia teaching English as a Fulbright teacher, where it was my honor to foster international friendships. I returned to the United States in 2012 and have been able to mentor and teach at-risk youth in several places, including the Best of the Batch Foundation, the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. I founded the World Family Day event at Carnegie Library. The event gives volunteers the opportunity to read children's books in their native tongue to ninety children and their families. In addition, the attendees have the opportunity to taste donated foods from across the globe and to try their hand at cultural crafts. I was able to learn about how nonprofits interact with governments in community building through a Coro Fellowship and was able to work on various projects that affected the communities within the Pittsburgh area through the fellowship. One project involved developing curriculum for the Dignity and Respect Sportsmanship program.
