Nia is a graduate of the Doctor of Education Program (20′) in the Department of Administrative and Instructional Leadership at St. John’s University. She is also a 2018-2020 University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) Barbara Jackson Scholar, 2019-2020 NYU Faculty First-Look Scholar, and a 2019 William L. Boyd Emerging Scholar. She received my Bachelor of Science degree in Public Affairs (12′) from Baruch College-City University of New York and a Master of Science degree in Mathematics Education from St. John’s University. Having studied and interned abroad in Ghana, China, and India, her doctoral research study focused on culturally responsive school leadership in response to the changing demographics in U.S schools. While in Baruch, Nia was on the cheerleading team, Student Government, took part in an internship at the NYC Council and engaged in various club activities. After graduating Baruch College, she became a mathematics teacher via The New York City Teaching Fellows Program for the NYC Department of Education. Nia taught mathematics at the middle school and college levels. I enjoy conducting research, traveling, reading, and teaching students at all levels.
