Originally from San Antonio, I have spent the last 7 years living and teaching in Austin. Before Austin, I lived in New York City while participating in an AmeriCorps program called City Year. I graduated from Texas State University with a B.A. in English and as I write this I am also working on (and hopefully finishing soon!) my master's thesis in English education at Teachers College, Columbia University. When I'm not teaching during the year (and when it is safe to do so!), I like experiencing live music, training for half-marathons, practicing yoga, spending time with my family, and taking my dog on hikes.
