About Me

I am currently a doctoral student in English Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, where I serve as an adjunct faculty member, a Zankel fellow with the Student Press Initiative, and a professional development coach with the Center for The Professional Education of Teachers. I am also tinkering as a curator and Connected Learning Ambassador for the National Writing Project’s Digital Is website.

Prior to this, I taught middle and high school English for nearly a decade in Detroit, where I also operated as an education advocate, consultant, school board member, Wayne State Writing Project fellow, co-founder of the Detroit Progressive Educator Coalition, and original member of the Detroit Future Schools program, an initiative to design and implement digital media arts-integrated curriculum.

My most recent curiosities center on the intersections between critical pedagogy, youth digital production, and civic engagement in urban classroom settings.
