Why are you an educator? Teaching is a profession that nourishes you emotionally, intellectually and creatively. As an early childhood teacher I laugh and smile a lot (much more than the average New Yorker does at their job I bet).


What are STAR Academy’s best qualities? The small school size fosters a familiarity and a network of support for students, families and staff, that I know sets us apart from other schools.


Life outside school: I love food, the arts, and travel (and I am fortunate that I have been able to visit more than 30 countries which has allowed me to indulge in all of this).

Life outside school: Lots of rest and relaxation.
