Over the past ten years, Maggie has nurtured her commitment to social justice as a facilitator and teacher. During her undergraduate career she earned a Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies degree at The College of William & Mary and was a student founder of The Haven, a support center for students experiencing sexual or relational abuse. Maggie continued to leverage her advocacy and leadership skills at Breakthrough Collaborative and as an AmeriCorps volunteer before attending Teachers College at Columbia for a Masters in Elementary Inclusive Education. Since then Maggie has been teaching students about the power of their voice and embracing their identity in classrooms up and down the East Coast. As a member of her school’s equity team, Maggie presented at an NYU CREATES event with other schools in the program. Most recently, she spearheaded equity professional development while navigating the new challenges of virtual teaching through a pandemic. She will miss being close to her family in Virginia, but Maggie is thrilled to move back to NYC. When she’s not teaching, she always finds a way to dance, laugh with her siblings and daydream about the possibilities of tomorrow.
