Why did you choose DCPS?
Growing up in suburban Maryland, our Nation’s capital has always held a special place in my heart. I began my teaching career in DC and the prospect of learning what it takes to lead the most progressive urban school district in our nation is one I could not refuse. Thus far, the experience has far exceeded my expectations and I am thankful for the opportunity to make education better for children in the district.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Reading, traveling, painting, and yoga!
If you could be any animal, what would you be? Why?
I’d be a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
