Background: B.A. Psychology and Sociology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, 2014; English and Language Arts Teacher (Washington D.C.); Special Education Teacher (Washington, D.C.)

Why data science? The modern special education classroom is heavily dependent on technology. As a result, any teacher has the opportunity to gather unfathomable amounts of data on their students. If we can narrow down this data into actionable learning checkpoints, and design specific lessons around Common Core standards, we can deliver a standard of superior instruction to SPED classrooms around the country. I enrolled at DSI to explore this intersection of education, data, and business.

Research and Career Interests: Utilizing machine learning to create targeted lesson plans for SPED classrooms.
