Hi there :)

Hi, my name is Ms. Emily and I am a Lead ELA & Math Teacher at Tip-Top Brain. I am originally from Upstate NY but live in NYC now while pursuing my childhood education degree. Outside of school, I like to spend my time volunteering, exploring New York, and hanging out with my dog, Walter.

I went to Saratoga Central Catholic High School in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I graduated as a Valedictorian with an Advanced Regents Diploma with Honors and a Mastery in Science and Mathematics. I took AP Biology, AP English Literature, AP World History, and AP United States History. I was an AP Scholar with Honors, Class President, National Honor Society President, and Community Service Club President. I also founded a Peer Tutoring Program for middle and high schoolers.

For my undergraduate education, I study childhood education with a concentration in biology at St. John’s University. I will be finishing my degree in December 2024. I am in the honors program and have been named to the Dean’s List. I recently completed a student teaching semester in Rome, Italy, where I taught English to first through third graders. I have also been inducted into Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education, Phi Eta Sigma Freshman Honor Society, and Order of the Omega Honor Society. On campus, I am involved with community service and various organizations.

During the school year, I work with young adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in a college immersion program and as a substitute teacher. I enjoy being able to work with students in a variety of different environments and meet their needs to help them reach their unique goals.

To me, being a teacher is important because education advances society. Every child has the ability to learn and reach their goals, but the path to meeting those goals may be different. Like in life, we all have strengths and areas of improvement, and in the classroom, it is no different. It is a teacher’s job to help students build upon their strengths and overcome any challenges they may face. Malala Yousafzai has said, “One child, one teacher, one pen, and one book can change the world.” For me, helping just one student means I am making a positive impact on the world. I am excited to help students at Tip-Top Brain meet their goals and help them make an impact on the world.

Thanks for checking out my bio!
