I am deeply committed to the vision that public schools will prepare all students, regardless of socio-economic status or home-language, to graduate from high school prepared to excel in college and career. As a consultant, I make this vision a reality for schools by transforming research into site-based action.

My other language loves are: creative writing, slam poetry, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.
