How are you involved in education?
Education is my passion. I’ve been an elementary school teacher and education nonprofit manager before leading Enriched Schools in DC. Enriched mission is simple: to tap the power of community wherever and whenever learning happens.Why? Our communities are overflowing with talent. Our neighbors have tremendous skills, passion, and experiences to contribute to the education of our city’s children, and are looking for a way to do so. Simply put, Enriched exists to redefine and rethink substitute teaching. We connect great guest educators to schools allowing full-time teachers to rest assured that their class is in good hands and that no hour of learning is lost. The kids don’t miss a beat.
Have you ever attended an edcamp or unconference before?
This is my first!
What do you hope to get out of edcamp MetroDC?
I hope to meet new people who are committed to innovative education solutions.
If you led a session at edcamp MetroDC, what would you present?
It would be a session to garner innovative solutions on ways that schools can improve substitute teaching and ensure that the sub day is a day on instead of a day off of learning.
