Amy grew up in California and Oregon, and was a Rotary Scholar in Segre, France. She is a graduate of the University of Rochester, where she earned a B.A. degree in Political Science and French. She attended the University of Rochester’s Warner School, earning an M.S. in the Teaching of French, with a permanent NYS Certification in 7-12 Social Studies. She is currently a teacher in the Brighton Central School District, where she teaches 9th and 10th grade World History and Sociology. Her 20+ years of teaching experience includes overseas teaching of English in Warsaw, Poland, student teaching at East High School, long-term substitute teaching of French in Brighton, and full-time teaching at Churchville-Chili Senior High School, Twelve Corners Middle School, and Brighton High School.

A world traveler, Amy incorporates her many experiences into her classroom instruction, and is passionate about providing students with culturally responsive teaching. Her activism work with marginalized student groups and clubs resulted in a WROC News 8 Golden Apple Award in 2018.

Amy has four children who currently attend or have graduated from School 58, East, and SOTA, and is committed to improving educational outcomes across RCSD. She is a firm believer in SEL and experiential learning, and believes all RCSD students should have equitable access to high quality programming in the musical arts, STEM, foreign language, athletics, and career-preparation programming similar to their suburban peers. She is also committed to alternative pathways to graduation and increased CTE opportunities districtwide. Amy believes this can only happen through adequate and fully funded NY State Foundational Aid.”
