New to the MSED Program this spring, I have been working in P-12 Education since 2001 in a range of roles: nine classroom years in New York City Department of Education; working for education non-profits developing curriculum, facilitating professional development, and supporting teachers, teams, and administrators; working at the district level in CPS; and currently working as an instructional coach. A common thread in this path, and my pedagogical passion, is largely grounded in supporting educators in co-creating learning spaces that promote student belonging, equity, engagement, and agency.
