Originally from central Pennsylvania, Anna feels extremely fortunate to have found Haven Academy early in her teaching career. Before discovering Haven, Anna attended Smith College in Western Massachusetts where she earned an undergraduate degree in Education & Child Studies and French Studies. She remained at Smith College to complete her Masters in Teaching. After Graduate School, Anna taught fifth grade in Springfield, Massachusetts. She then moved to NYC and taught fourth grade for two years at a Charter school in the Bronx. Anna is now a proud member of the Haven Community and absolutely, positively loves it!
