I have chosen to work here at Common Ground because I have found a place where I can show up as my whole self—New Haven native, first generation college student, African-American.  My colleagues are talented, innovative and diverse, as are my students. I have been greatly supported in any and all of my professional endeavors. I’m not only supported and encouraged, but challenged daily to reflect and evaluate my practice to better serve my students’ intellectual and emotional needs.
