“My job as Dean of Students at Washington Leadership Academy is great because I have the pleasure of daily interaction with our amazing students and families. As the Dean of Students, I have had the privilege of helping to develop a student culture that places an emphasis on positive teacher-student interaction and facilitates student growth and goal development for their high school years and beyond.”
“I have been in classrooms all my life. I love teaching. It seems like it’s in my veins, in my blood. The best reward of my job is to see my students achieving their dreams. When they come with smiling faces to show me their diploma because that changes their lives. They can find better jobs, better positions; they can help their family; and they can become better citizens of this country.”

“I joined the staff of DC Bilingual Public Charter School as a Literacy Coach eight years ago. I chose DC Bilingual because, as a first generation immigrant, I was energized by the opportunity to serve children and families facing the challenge of learning two languages and a new culture. I have stayed at DC Bilingual and now serve as its first Head of School in order to help guide the school’s rapid and sustained gains in student achievement and help build positive school culture for students, staff and families.”
"I enjoy working at DC PCSB because we have such a dedicated staff that are passionate about our mission."
