Director & Co-Founder
Christina started her work in education as an attorney advocating for disadvantaged youth at the Department of Social Services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Motivated by a desire to intervene sooner in the lives of such youth, Christina earned her Masters in Education and focused her practice on inequities in urban public schools. Christina has served as a public high school teacher and as a program officer in Boston and Baltimore. Prior to co-launching Urban Teacher Center, Christina focused on policy and practice inequities and improving instructional practice in the Baltimore City Public Schools as the Chief of Staff for the Chief Academic Officer. In this capacity, she managed the oversight of 200 schools and an $800 million operating budget. Christina has a B.A. from Boston College, a J.D. with honors from Suffolk University, and an M.Ed. in Education from Boston College. Christina is a proud graduate of public K-12 schools.
