My husband and I moved to Princeton in September 2015, so he could finish his graduate degree. We had our first child, and I decided not to pursue full-time employment until my son is older.
I miss teaching though. I've worked with advanced students and pushed them to win contests, excel in AP and SAT scores, and excel in college.
I've worked with struggling students who told me they would never be able to write, and after less than six months, they could plan an effective essay in less than 60 seconds and write the essay in less than an hour.
I have high expectations for my students, and my students meet those expectations.
