What sparked your interest in education? How did you end up working with CPET?
I found an interest in education in the early 1980s. Traveling with my dad (who was a school superintendent at the time), we often visited an old Northern California mining community that had no municipal electric or phone service -- but they had a vibrant one room school house. From those interactions, I developed a curiosity about the role of education in our daily lives.
I found out about CPET by luck! I came to TC in 2008 to teach full-time and begin my doctoral work. A few years later, I joined a social studies coaching project in the Bronx, and I have been involved ever since.
