With a proven excellence in the development of strong rapport with students, colleagues and administrators, I have over 20 years of experience as a classroom teacher, adjunct, advocate, teaching artist, researcher, editor and curriculum/assessment developer. Wrote Education Policy and Community articles for Examiner and Chestnut Hill Local (2010-2016). The Leeway Foundation in 2011 funded my research with high school dropouts, adjudicated youth, and homeless teens. In 2018, I co-authored a 20-hour anti-racist training for educators, which explores systemic racism, bias and intersectionality in educational settings.
