I have spent the last 17+ years in education as a a founding teacher for organizations such as Achievement First, K.I.P.P., and Mastery Charter Schools. After many years of teaching grades K-5 in public-charter and public elementary and middle schools, I went on to become a PreK-8th Principal, and then to work for education non-profits. I currently work for National Math and Science Initiative where I serve as Senior Director, Coach Development. I am passionate about supporting all students, especially those furthest from opportunity. I am a student, teacher, and parent advocate.
