I am a freelance journalist living in Brooklyn. I report on issues relating to education and immigration, and my writing has appeared (or is forthcoming) in publications including (in alphabetical order) BRIGHT Magazine, Edutopia, Harper’s, The Hechinger Report, The New York Times, NPR, Pacific Standard, and The Washington Post. I often report in Spanish and shoot my own photographs.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and English from Harvard College and a master’s in education from Boston College. Before becoming a journalist, I taught kindergarten, first, and second grades in greater Boston and the Western Highlands of Guatemala.
