Molly was born and raised in the small town of Dighton, Massachusetts. She attended UMass Amherst and earned a degree in Political Science and Economics. Her passion for education began in college when she had the opportunity to work as an ESL teaching assistant in the town of Holyoke, MA. After graduating, she moved to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Urban Teachers program, where she received Master’s Degrees in Secondary English Education and Special Education. Molly taught in the Center City Charter Network in D.C. for four amazing years before deciding it was time to return to Massachusetts. She is excited to be a part of the team at Conservatory Lab and can’t wait to work with middle school students again! Outside of school, Molly enjoys reading YA novels, going to the beach, trying out new recipes, cheering on the Patriots, and spending time with her family and friends.
