All roads led to Brandeis. It was not hard to choose to apply to the MAT program. I was looking for a teaching program that would weave together my personal life and political /community activist experiences, and prepare me to teach in the Boston Public school system. And this was it! I have been working, paid and unpaid, with children for decades. I have been a youth worker in various capacities, an at-home parent and volunteer in my 2 daughters’ schools, and recently a teacher for Girls’ LEAP, an anti-violence prevention program in the Boston area. I am committed to taking all my wonderful positive life experiences into the classroom in the hope that I may inspire a child to dream of a better future.
