The Broad Residency 2018-2020
I believe that providing a high-quality education to all students, regardless of background, is one of the most critical drivers in creating a more just, equitable society. A quality education is a key component in being able to fully reach one’s potential. My time in schools has shown me that given the opportunities, every student can achieve at remarkable levels. I am driven to provide these opportunities for all students and to innovate around how to continually do this better.
