Academic Background & Research Interests
Culturally Responsive Leadership in Out-School Learning Organizations
My background spans the continuum of education as have a teacher's certification, worked as a youth development professional for two years, and worked professionally as a higher education administrator for two years.
What led you to pursue a Degree in Education?
I wanted to deepen my knowledge about leading in culturally responsive ways as I have seen many organizations struggle in that area.
Why did you choose the UW and College of Education?
I wanted to pursue a degree at an urban world class institution. My hope is to continue working in a similar style institution so I thought this would be a good first-hand experience.
What will you do to transform the world upon graduation?
When I finish at the UW my hope is to work in a capacity where I can directly support out of school practitioners through research and consultation toward more culturally responsive learning environments.
