Where did you grow up and what brought you to Tobin?
I grew up in Princeton, NJ where I participated in school orchestras and piano competitions. I really loved making music as a student so I decided to attend Boston University to study music education! I am happy to be student teaching with Mr. Reynolds this semester and learn how to be an awesome music teacher just like him!

Favorite time of year and why?
My favorite time of the year is summer because my birthday is in June, and I love going to the beach!

Favorite teacher you had in school and why?
My favorite teacher I had in school was Mrs. Vasiliu, who was my middle school orchestra teacher. She taught me that making music with my friends and peers is something you can always do even as a grown-up. I’ve been making music with friends ever since!

I would love sunning in the tropics! That sounds amazing!!

My favorite movie is My Neighbor Totoro, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. I love the films from Studio Ghibli.
