Hi, I'm Will, a history major at Princeton University from Richmond, VA. As the son of two teachers, I have always aspired to pursue a career in education, and I am beginning to make that dream a reality. During the summer of 2019, I served as a teaching assistant in two English courses at the Phillips Academy Andover Summer Session, where I will be returning again this summer. In August of 2020, my postgraduate career will begin as a Teaching Fellow at St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. Through the fellowship program, I will simultaneously earn a master's degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania. My strongest subjects are history and English, but I also enjoy helping students with standardized tests. Outside of the academic world, my passions are sports (especially soccer), the outdoors, traveling, and listening to 70s and 80s "yacht rock."
