What is your fondest memory from Oxbridge?
My favorite part of Oxbridge was the people because the sense of community among students and faculty is unwavering. Teachers and friends were always there to help through the hard times and celebrate your accomplishments. Classes were always interesting because I had a personal connection to the teacher and the students sitting next to me.
How did Oxbridge prepare you for college?
Throughout high school, I had teachers and coaches who pushed me to go the extra mile and challenge myself in my studies. As a result, I have the confidence and ability to tackle any project given to me at Columbia because I'm already used to pushing myself to reach further.
What advice would you give to new students?
If a student wants to start their own club, they should start it. If a student wants to be a cheerleader, but has never cheered before they should go to tryouts anyway! New students should not be afraid to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. Oxbridge provides these opportunities so students can get a better understanding of who they are, what their strengths are, and what interests them.
How is Oxbridge different than other schools?
A lot of schools prepare their students for the next step. But at Oxbridge we look at our students and ask, "How can we not only get them into a great college, but how can we help them excel in college and be world changers."
What's the best part about teaching at Oxbridge?
I teach classes that allow me to work with students all four years. I am able to get to know them and what motivates them; I see their skills evolve over time; and I can reflect with them about past challenges and successes. I really feel like I know these students by the time they graduate, and that's pretty cool.
What do students learn in your class?
I want my students to develop confidence in their own abilities to tackle texts and writing assignments so that when they get to college and beyond they can feel prepared. I also hope that students feel invited into academic conversations and feel comfortable discussing how characters in literature might relate to what is happening in the world today and what we can learn from it.
Students come to Oxbridge with kindness, curiosity, and a willingness to try new things. Together they grow into adults with new and improved skills, expanded knowledge, developed relationships, and a quiet sense of confidence. Whether in the classroom, on the stage, or on the field Oxbridge students learn to win with grace, grow from their challenges, and always support each other.
