Carrie comes from a family full of teachers. As a 10th grader, Carrie was one of the only students in her Geometry class to understand proofs. As such, she found an opportunity to begin her teaching career assisting her classmates to ensure everyone was comfortable with their Geometry skills. From then on, she was a go-to resource for all her classmates, and her future was seemingly decided.
She is also very passionate about art, particularly film and different styles of photography. She decided to pursue a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography and put the idea of teaching to the side. Funnily enough, she continually assisted all her photography peers in bettering their work-- she could not seem to leave teaching behind. Carrie is also a published poet in various literary magazines, and is passionate about the power of language and student achievement.
Today, she holds three Masters Degrees and continues to learn with every opportunity. Drawing on her background in Special Education, she reviews and rewrites IEPs and 504s, as well as coaches and educates other teachers in how to support students with varying needs. While she is skilled in working with students who have a range of learning differences, she enjoys working with students of all academic abilities. At ES, She takes every opportunity to personalize lessons for each of her students and shares her joy and excitement to maintain their motivation.
