“My motivation for teaching stems from my love of working with youth as well as my belief that dedicated teachers and engaging material promote student curiosity and investment. I am enthusiastic about helping students find topics they are passionate about and empowering them to take ownership over their learning. As an educator, I aim to both expect hard work and academic excellence and offer meaningful support. I am excited to grow as a teacher at a school that celebrates experiential learning, curiosity, and student responsibility. I am drawn to Maine Coast Semester because of its strong identity, which includes room for innovating and experimenting without compromising on the integrity of the school’s academics and community values.”
