|Two weeks after starting teaching in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina knocked down my
school in the 9th Ward. I joined a team to start a KIPP school for displaced hurricane

of KIPP. I taught for six years at KIPP New Orleans and KIPP DC before starting in
teacher recruitment. I currently lead teacher recruitment for KIPP Bay Area Schools
and have the pleasure of connecting with passionate educators ready to grow and develop
in our amazing schools.
