Arielle is a full-time high school math teacher in Hartford, Connecticut. In addition to teaching Algebra II and Geometry, she leads an afternoon barre activity and has chaperoned student trips to the Dominican Republic, Czech Republic, and England. Although math is her favorite subject to teach, she has been (and always will be!) a learner of foreign languages. She has formally studied Spanish and Russian for over a decade, and she continues to practice with language partners abroad through Skype. In her junior year of college, she studied abroad in Saint Petersburg, Russia, where she lived with a host family and took classes at Russia’s first liberal arts school. She returned abroad three years later to teach secondary mathematics in Gracias, Honduras at a bilingual school. Outside of teaching and chaperoning, Arielle loves reading, hiking, and camping. This past summer, she completed an all-women’s eight day backpacking expedition in Alaska’s Talkeetna Mountains with the National Outdoor Leadership School. She enjoys terrible puns, watching reruns of New Girl, and snuggling up with her cat, Millie.
