I have been at TechBoston since 2009 when the middle school was added. I have been teaching for a really long time and love working with young people; they keep me on my toes and keep me young. TechBoston is an amazing school to be at because it is a place where everyone feels cared for, is a member of a positive community, and can reach their potential and be celebrated for their success!
