If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
Leading Talent Development at CityBridge Education: www.citybridge.org
Talent Development programs at CityBridge Education. Previously, I served as the Deputy Director of School Partnerships at New Classrooms Innovation Partners, where I helped design support and implementation for the Teach To One: Math personalized learning program.
I taught seventh grade English as a Teach For America corps member in Prince George’s County, MD. Before moving into education, I was the founding Managing Editor of ScienceProgress.org, the science and technology policy magazine published by the Center for American Progress.
I think this idea is awesome because it combines the research to cultivate awareness of the past with the act of imagining yourself in historical situations, something students just can't do without empathizing with those they're learning about. So many powerful opportunities to learn about others across time and difference.
