Wyndy earned a BA in Sociology and Women's Studies from Boston University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and graduated summa cum laude with distinction. She went on to earn her EdD in Communities, Culture, and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Throughout her time at Harvard, she taught people of a variety of ages including graduate, middle, and high school students. Her love of working with students and interest in psychology later led her back to graduate school to become licensed in school guidance counseling. Her areas of study included college essay writing as well as methods for helping students with psychological, social, and executive functioning difficulties.
Wyndy is a certified school counselor through Boston University. There, she focused on helping students who were experiencing emotional distress and difficulties with executive functioning, including study skills, organization, and goal setting. Her teaching experience is quite varied. At the Steppingstone Academy, Wyndy taught math, social studies, and English to middle school students. While in graduate school, she simultaneously worked as a teaching fellow for a course on formative evaluation at Harvard and as a GED teacher. Most recently, after completing a 500+ hour apprenticeship, Wyndy earned her School Principal's license. Throughout her apprenticeship, Wyndy demonstrated her ability to meet Massachusetts' high standards for principals including instructional leadership, strong family and community engagement, and the promotion of positive school culture.
Wyndy enjoys ceramics, traveling, and politics, and spends much of her "free" time with her husband, two young daughters, and their dog. Her goal is to have her students leave their sessions both confident that they understand the current material and optimistic that they will be able to successfully tackle future material. She loves to teach and is very excited about being part of the Signet team.
