After graduating from Princeton in 2013 and working in healthcare analytics consulting for a year and a half, I was ecstatic that TPP welcomed me back during the spring of 2015. Teaching four sections of college prep chemistry at a local, public high school provided me with the unique opportunity to hone individual lessons. My cohort of sophomores and juniors was highly energetic, and they pushed me to be the best instructor that I could be. I especially remember our lessons on chemistry in careers during my original unit plan. After allowing my students to follow through on out-of-the-box ideas with their projects, I was significantly impressed with their final presentations.

After earning my certification, I spent the 2015 summer working as a teaching assistant for a gifted and talented program for middle and high school students. Now, I have returned to the classroom once again—not as a teacher, but as a student. I am currently a J.D. candidate at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor. While my primary interests are intellectual property and litigation, I hope to take some classes that explore the intersections of the U.S. legal and education systems. After graduation, I hope to work at a law firm that will encourage me to draw upon my background and diverse interests, including teaching.
