Ms. Black is excited to continue being a part of the EQ3 team as a 1st grade teacher! She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College with a focus in fine arts and film production. She then joined AmeriCorps in Rochester, NY where she worked in an elementary school with Kindergarten through 5th grade students. Her experiences showed her the impact quality education can have in positively influencing students’ lives. This inspired a passion for teaching and she went on to receive her Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Pepperdine University. Ms. Black believes in the unique talents and abilities of each of her students. She hopes to provide an environment in which her students can follow their curiosity and foster a life-long love of learning. In her spare time, she enjoys making ink drawings, spending time with her family, and hiking with her dog Scout.
