A Long Island native, Gillian joined Bay Ridge Prep’s Upper School Math Department in 2014 after teaching for the New York City Department of Education. As a graduate of Binghamton University, with a masters degree earned from Brooklyn College, she developed a passion for learning, education, and the perfect fall weather.
Gillian describes the best moments as an educator as when students have that “lightbulb” moment and show perseverance when working through their struggles. In addition to teaching math, Gillian advises the National Honor Society and Student Activities Committee. During the summer months, she is a camp supervisor and brings that energy to Bay Ridge Prep when it comes to planning events, school trips and other school happenings.
In her spare time Gillian enjoys walks to Central Park with her dog Reese, traveling, the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
