The Broad Residency 2017-2019


As a teacher and now a district leader, I have become increasingly aware of the complexity of the systems that both shape and limit the opportunities available for children. Students, particularly low-income students of color, face extraordinary challenges at home and school, compounded by a lack of resources and systemic social injustices. I am committed to being a relentless advocate for my students, past and present, to ensure that every child has access to quality education and a choice-filled life.

As a Broad Resident, Sydney Ahearn served as the director of early learning at Atlanta Public Schools.
