About me

Hi! My name is Carolyn and I am originally from Somers, NY. I currently live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with my younger sister Eve and my best friend Mia from childhood. This is my third year teaching as a high school special education teacher in Manhattan. I currently teach 10th grade ICT Literature and Global History. My first master's from Pace is in inclusive social studies education, and I am now enrolled in the literacy specialist program. I am excited to take this course as it is very different from most of the graduate courses I have taken - not to mention we get to use a platform other than Blackboard!! Additionally, my dad is a computer programmer and my sister is a data scientist - she is currently getting her masters degree at NYU in Applied Urban Science and Informatics. Therefore, I am looking forward to learning more about the world of computer science so I will finally have some information to bring to the once very foreign table with my dad and my sister. 

Some interests of mine include yoga - I teach at a gym in Brooklyn - hiking, politics, American History traveling, reading physical newspapers, trying new recipes, watching documentaries (Vice News!!) / Real Housewives (I definitely have a weak spot for reality TV), and photojournalism (I am not a photographer but I love looking at photographs, especially those of real life, everyday people and occurrences).
