I have worked with the Kauffman Foundation, Teach For America, The Kansas World Trade Center, Seattle-area elected officials, and various education and social policy agencies. I'm currently living in Asia due to husband's job and am investigating mobile careers to match my interests in arts, education, social policy, event planning, startup guidance and international understanding.
Improving the world, whether through a smile or a systemic change in the systems that hold us back.
Great idea I heard recently- instead of having high school students opt in to AP/honors courses, change to create an opt out system. Traditionally these classes have a drastically skewed demographic as low-income and minority students often don't think of themselves as honors students. By opting in all students who earn a B or higher in prerequisite courses, students begin to change opinions of their abilities and more students achieve higher levels of education.
