EXPERIENCE


Third Grade Teaching Assistant at the Maimonides School in Brookline, MA (current): I work with the students in small groups and one-on-one in an all-Hebrew classroom. The students learn Hebrew reading, writing, speaking, Jewish values, and general Jewish knowledge.

Jewish Studies Educator (Summer 2014): At Camp Ramah in Wisconsin, I taught campers a variety of Judaic subjects, and created lessons involving discussion, skits, art, and journaling. I planned curriculum and articulated educational goals for the campers and professional development sessions twice a week.

Private Tutor (2012-2013): In addition to a summer of SAT instruction with Ivy Bound, I also have experience creating individualized lessons for younger students in the areas of Judaics and Women’s Studies.

Writing Center Tutor (2012): During my senior year at the University of Maryland, I worked one-on-one with college students who needed help with their papers and essays. Students brought assignments from a wide range of classes, and I met with them at any point in the process, whether it was brainstorming, drafting, revising, or giving a final read-through.

Teaching Assistant at William H. Hall High School (2012): In a semester-long observation and experiential program, I sat in on numerous high school English courses, assisted in designing effective lesson plans for the English Department, and worked with students one-on-one to help them develop ideas for writing assignments.

 

 

ACTIVITIES/HOBBIES


I love any activity relating to reading or writing. I love classic novels, modern fiction, short stories and poetry. I recently started a blog, where I am exploring the mode of non-fiction. I also enjoy cooking and baking, walking and biking outdoors, seeing films and theater productions, acting, yoga, singing a cappella, and spending time with my family.
