About

I write about education, immigration, and structural inequality. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in publications including (in alphabetical order) The Atlantic, Bright, Edutopia, Harper’s Magazine, The Hechinger Report, National Public Radio (NPR), The New York Times, Pacific Standard, The Progressive, and The Washington Post.

Before becoming a journalist, I taught elementary school in Boston and Guatemala’s Western Highlands. I have a BA in Anthropology from Harvard College and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the Lynch School of Education at Boston College.

I live in Brooklyn.
