Katie is excited to be joining the HTe Mesa community as an M.Ed. resident and New School Creation Fellow. She recently relocated to San Diego from New York City, where she worked with the Department of Education’s Office of Community Schools. At the NYC DOE, Katie supported a portfolio of 17 schools to implement holistic student/family supports and school-improvement initiatives in partnership with local nonprofits. Prior to that, Katie was a Community School Director at a public school in Brooklyn. Her passion for education and public service began when she was an undergraduate student working in after school programs. Katie holds an A.B. in Social Studies from Harvard University and an LMSW from NYU’s Silver School of Social Work. Katie is also an avid reader, runner, yoga instructor, and ceramicist. She looks forward to working with HTeM staff, students, and families as she learns about educational leadership and embarks on the project of opening a school.
