Our Staff

The teachers and staff at the Phoenix Network of Schools skillfully differentiates curriculum, emphasizes a college-going culture, and pushes students’ thinking both about the academics at hand and about their own capacity for high achievement.

In 2015, she attended Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, earning her administrator license and M.Ed. in School Leadership.
