Hannah is a 2nd year student getting her M.S. in Human-Environment Relations with a concentration in Environmental Psychology. She is most interested in promoting global well-being, equity and justice through her work and research. Her current research focuses on refugee housing in Uganda.

Before coming to Cornell, Hannah worked as a youth urban farming program manager at a nonprofit in Cleveland, Ohio. The program sought to give meaningful work experience to teens and instill ownership and agency within their own farm-based business. Hannah has traveled extensively, visiting and working on farms in New Zealand, France, and Ecuador.

I believe that, given the right tools, every student will rise to meet high expectations and realize their full potential. It is the responsibility of teachers to actively engage students and continually build upon what they already know. 

I strive to create an inclusive, authentic, positive, and stimulating learning environment that fosters creativity and critical thinking. Rather than centering myself and my teaching, I work to center the learning process and promote student interaction in the classroom.
