I Chose Dallas Because…

I wanted to do local/state level policy work in a community that I care a lot about.  I spent a lot of time away, but I was eager to come back home. It also happened to be great timing, Dallas is really on the cutting-edge of doing great things in education and I wanted to be a part of it.
