From The Bronx to Biscayne Bay: Teaching in Two Corners of American Education
Bailey Farrell, Ransom Everglades School
After graduating in 2013 from Stanford University with a B.S. in Chemistry, Ms. Bailey Farrell served as a corps member in Teach For America. She taught in a public school classroom in The Bronx for three years, where her students consistently outperformed the average pass rate on the New York State Regents exam. She served as 10th Grade Team Leader, as Science Department Chair, and offered an AP® Chemistry course for the first time in the school's 14-year history. During her time in New York, she also went on to earn her M.S.T. from Fordham University. Ms. Farrell currently teaches chemistry at both an honors and traditional level at Ransom Everglades School, a nationally ranked private day school in Miami, FL. She is excited to share her experiences in these two vastly different environments and provide insights on how to be a effective educator and make a meaningful impact in any context.
