Favorite Sports Team

Our local champions, the Washington Spirit!

What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love finding new places in the city to hang out with my partner and our dogs. I also play soccer a couple times a week and work with our local mutual aid organization—each ward has a mutual aid organization that is great for helping neighbors help each other!

What drew you to education?

I was drawn to education because of the incredible potential it holds to give every child an opportunity for success and as the best mechanism for continuously building a more just, democratic, creative, and intellectually curious society.
