Joseph says: “I am a current law student at Boston College Law School who came to Boston after spending time teaching middle school science and math in south Minneapolis. I received my B.A. from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL in Sociology with a concentration in Medicine, Health, and Science. Upon my graduation, I moved to Minneapolis where I taught seventh grade life science as well as math at the fifth, sixth, and seventh grade level. I was able to combine my interest in teaching with my love for science by getting students excited for science with live experiments and hands-on experience. Since then, I have enjoyed my time in law school applying more of my writing and reasoning skills. I live in Brighton and enjoy basketball, college football, baking, and volunteering.”
