Experienced Educator, Cambridge Public Schools Parent, Collaborative Organizational Leader
We need someone on the School Committee who is in the thick of it as a current Cambridge Public Schools parent, has on-the-ground classroom experience, and knows how to build consensus and get things done.
I began my career in education with as a full-time classroom teacher in public schools for 5 years (teaching both art and English), and studied school reform and teacher leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Cambridge has been my home for 18 years, and my children are now in 2nd and 7th grade in the Cambridge Public Schools.
I get things done. I have bridged scholarship, public understanding and action in my career at non-profits and at Brandeis University. As Assistant Director of ENACT: The Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation I am growing a national program based at Brandeis that is teaching college students how to be effective, engaged citizens at the state legislative level.
I know the classroom. I know our community. I know how to build consensus. I will be accountable to you.
I ask you for your #1 vote on November 5th. Let's work together.
