In her twelve years in the classroom, Connie taught kindergarten and second grade, wrote curriculum, led vertical planning, presented professional development, and coordinated Club We Can, a nationally recognized service club for 3rd through 6th graders. Her passion for global education led Connie to consulting to support educators and systems that integrate global perspectives and issues into existing curriculum to foster global collaboration.
Connie believes that teaching children to be globally minded requires the teacher to pursue personal global experiences. She has completed graduate course work in China, a Fulbright – Hays Project Abroad to India, and the Global Competence Certificate (GCC) through World Savvy, Columbia University, and Asia Society. She loves to travel and learn about the world, and enjoys exploring the cultural diversity of her home in Manhattan.
Connie is an ardent human rights advocate. She serves on the Committee on Teaching About the United Nations (CTAUN) and is an active member of the United Nations Association.
