Renee is a New York native who found her way back home through teaching. She attended a small college in New England, and remained in Boston after she graduated to work in advertising technology. After two years of working in the industry, she made a decision to change career pathways to teaching.
In 2016, Renee joined New York City's Teaching Fellows and became a licensed Special Education Teacher. Renee spent her first years teaching in a self-contained setting for students with disabilities in the Bronx. Here, she learned the power of student advocacy and choice, which she believes builds the best learners.
When she isn't teaching, Renee likes to think of herself as a learning cook, avid reader, and aspiring traveler.
