David currently serves as the Director, Office of Equity and Excellence for Prince George's County Public Schools. Previously, David was the National Leadership Facilitator at the NYC Leadership Academy. He has designed curriculum and facilitated professional learning for clients such as Somerville Public Schools, MA, Lexington One School District, SC, and Kentwood Public Schools, MI. Prior to joining the NYC Leadership Academy, David worked as the Executive Director for the Office of Continuous Systemic Improvement in Prince George’s County, Maryland. In that role he worked to create coherence in how central offices and schools approached continuous improvement via the Data Wise Improvement Process. David brings to the Leadership Academy his experiences as a teacher in the Durham Public Schools, an instructional facilitator with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, and a consultant with McREL International. One of his most memorable roles was that of a teacher and mock trial coach in Durham, where he found that the application of research, argumentation, analysis, and rhetoric built confidence in students that extended beyond adolescence.
