我教美国文学和AP语言 & Composition at a private secondary school in Potomac, MD. 在我成为老师之前, I practiced corporate and securities law as a partner in the DC office of one of the world’s leading law firms. 当我决定成为一名老师, I wanted to continue to practice law while establishing my credentials for “Career 2.0.我调查了很多M.A. literature programs, but none offered the combination of quality and flexibility that NDMU offered. 更重要的是, 当我开始这个项目的时候, I found myself connected to classmates who loved literature and professors who loved to teach literature. My classmates and professors became more than colleagues, they became friends. To this day, we gather (virtually) to talk about books. I received my undergraduate and law degrees at schools that are considered among the nation’s best. 然而,, my most rewarding educational experience—the one that will stay with me for the rest of my life—was at NDMU.
