Staff picks

Let's give a warm welcome to Danielle Holman, who is pursuing an Ed.M. in Learning and Teaching at HGSE while supporting Making Caring Common as our Youth Advisory Board Coordinator. Prior to attending HGSE, she worked as an admissions officer at Princeton University, where she received her bachelor's degree in Public Policy and minored in African American Studies and Teacher Preparation.

This month, Danielle is encouraging the MCC community to share the Youth Advisory Board application with high school students and teachers who are passionate about bringing kindness to their schools. Applications are due October 13.
