I dressed up as Nellie Bly for the 6th grade biography fair because the role of Emily Dickinson was already taken.
I've spent the past three years covering city education, politics, business, and crime for the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, out of Chicago and New York City. I also blogged extensively about education policy for GothamSchools.org.
I split my time between New York and Chicago, and now New Haven, Conn. too. I'm on a relentless hunt for the next story/project/gig to tackle.
