Meet Ms. Morin

Continuing our series on our new middle school staff, this week we’ll be turning the spotlight to Jaime Morin. Ms. Morin is our 6th grade math and science teacher, whose kindness, diligence, and patience has been an incredible asset to the middle school this year. We’re so excited to have her on our team. Hear more about Ms. Morin in her own words below.


What is your previous teaching experience?
After attending college in North Carolina, I moved to Tacoma, Washington, where I began my teaching career with Teach for America as a sixth grade math teacher. During my time in WA, I also taught seventh and eighth grade math. Following my commitment with TFA, I moved to Rhode Island and taught eighth grade math at a charter school in Massachusetts. This is my sixth year teaching.

I live with my fiancé, Jared, our cat, Finnegan, and newly adopted puppy, Rainie.

Hobbies and Interests?
Outside of teaching, I love to read, cook, hike and travel (when it was safe to do so!).
