Aisha Douglas, Achievement First Brooklyn High School
Aisha is currently an Academic Dean at Achievement First Brooklyn High School focusing on teacher development, curriculum development, and student success. She believes empowering teachers to bring their authentic experiences and voices to the classroom space creates an environment that encourages students to confidently share their experiences. Aisha’s goal is to ensure students see that their voices are valued and are a necessary part of controlling the narratives for their communities and themselves. As an EdSurge Voices of Change Writing Fellow, she tackles the need for more radical approaches to building school communities that foster innovation, creativity, and empowerment.
