If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I would have dinner with Harriet Tubman. She is the epitome of selflessness and bravery, and I would love to learn from her.

What motivates you to create social impact?

My life’s work will be dedicated towards working with families, communities, and students to close opportunity gaps and eradicate educational inequity.

Host Site Overview

Education Evolving is a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy analysis, design, and advocacy organization focused on American public education. We seek to turn public education into a self-improving system, which will be the case when policy is designed to enable and encourage innovation, when teachers lead the learning, and when schools break from traditional givens.
