I write about preparing diverse, future-ready learners to lead.
I am an educator, attorney and critical thinking evangelist. With degrees in law, public administration and computer science, I’ve always had a passion for equity. My efforts to tackle educational inequity are particularly personal. Tracked early into gifted and talented programs in my hometown of Brooklyn, I was afforded opportunities my neighborhood peers were not. And as a recovering underachiever, I’m a living example of what happens when we decide it is not okay to leave genius on the table. In 2015, I founded thinkLaw, an award-winning organization that helps educators leverage inquiry-based instructional strategies to close the critical thinking gap and ensure they teach and REACH all students, regardless of race or what side of the poverty line students were born into. I believe critical thinking skills are imperative to the future of work, where the majority of jobs today’s students will hold haven’t even been thought up yet.
