What University do you attend? Undergrad/Grad?
University of Virginia
Why did you choose DCPS?
I study education policy and want to work for a large, urban school district that’s on the frontline of change and progress. DCPS fits the bill perfectly, and has given me real responsibilities in creating even more change and progress.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Painting and drawing, running (kind of), cooking, watching trash TV, eating, thrift-shopping, reading.
If you could be any animal, what would you be? Why?
My dog, Buddy Wickham. He’s a beagle, he’s perfect, and he’s living the dream. He pretty much lounges around all day, eats when he wants, and plays outside like three times a day.
Please feel free to share anything else!
Fun fact: I shut down the White House in 2006 (age ten), because they thought I was a security threat. I really just forgot my backpack on a bench outside and they didn’t want to take any chances.
