Every job that I've ever had somehow prepared me for my job at The New School. I have been a Camp Counselor, a tutor in everything from SAT Prep to College Algebra, a Resident Assistant, and a lead teacher in a classroom full of 3-year-olds. After starting at New School as an afternoon assistant in Preschool, I became a full-time substitute, giving me the opportunity to really see every side of The New School family. The next summer, Mr. Bill asked me to help write the school’s Annual Report. Over that summer, I was able to show off my tech skills to Ms. Angel. That tech savvy (and my years of teaching experience) got me an offer to teach Technology for 3rd-7th grade. The path may have been roundabout, but it led me to an unexpected dream job.
