It was there where she discovered her love and passion for Early Childhood Education. She later returned to NYC to pursue a Masters degree in Literacy.
During her time teaching in urban schools in Brooklyn, Denise sought to expose students to experiences outside of the city setting. With a belief that students learn best through experiences, she organized trips to local parks, built awareness in sustainability through urban gardening, and provided opportunities for students learn through inquiry and to work collaboratively. With these ideas in mind, when she sought for change and discovered MUSE, she knew that this was the community that she wanted to be a part of!
