During what I believed to be the darkest moment of my life, on the crest of another abyss I found transcendence in serving my alma mater, serving a community of 1st generation college students who were being asked to stand tall in the face of a world meant for others. I simply brought myself. That was enough.
Highlighted: Closing Remarking given to a talented group of 1st Generation BiPOC College students embarking on their first year at Georgetown during the Pandemic. My thoughts the Radical Imagination and propelling yourself towards what lies right in front of you.
Highlighted: The Missing Year Project discusses a missed year of dreams with Rob Jackson (he/him), a data scientist looking to life on the land for guidance. Rob speaks with us about family dynamics, Georgetown University, and sowing seeds for dreams. Thank you Sarah + @themissingyearproject
Movement Scientist | Analyst | Activist
My education in statistics and analysis was brought to life when I found that I myself, as well as the students I served, were all living the lives described in my research; incomplete research telling incomplete stories about me and my community.
I’m a story-teller, data scientist whose foundations as an educator and organizer color every aspect of my practice and teaching.
Building the Learning Analytics Curriculum for 2020 and Beyond
Lecture includes best practices that relate to using learning analytics to promote inclusion and success. See
Who: I am an educator obsessed with storytelling, community building, and practical innovation. I’m a culture builder, my work is successful when people believe in their theory of impacts drives business success and data is key to measuring value and provide generative data-informed dissent.
What: I have led discussion on Race + Common Good and diversity in education data science (LAK ’19). At the Data For Black Lives Conference I facilitated discussions with educators on spoke on the issue of implicit bias/ algorithmic racial bias in education data analysis. I have extensive training and experience in data management, visualization, and adult facilitation; specifically as it relates to education data management, and non-profit data-driven culture development. As an educator and mentor I take pride in introducing folks to Data & Analytics.
How: I work to improve organization systems using my background in measurement, instructional design, promotional strategies, & change management. I believe data management plans and metrics should support 360 degree organizational growth.
