K-12 Administration Intern

May 2020 - August 2020 Baltimore, MD
“This summer I served as a K-8 school administrator intern at Henderson-Hopkins. My core responsibility was to aid the school administration, leadership, and school reopening workgroup in developing a school reopening and academic recovery plan for the 2020-21 school year in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I split my time researching and offering insight to global school reopening efforts and best practices between the reopening workgroup's 3 sub-committees: Teaching and Learning, Technology and Operations, and Health and Safety. The research amassed from global practice and help from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and Medicine allowed me the opportunity to work on some other other projects within these sub-committees. For Teaching and Learning, I teamed up with school administrators and teachers to observe and evaluate various online learning platforms to decide which would be most helpful in academic recovery. For Technology and Operations, I used the current advice from the CDC and a blueprint of the school's campus to decide how many students could fit within each classroom with adequate distancing. And for Health and Safety, I introduced and shared Davidson's own weight room entrance and screening procedures with the school, which would then be applied to their recess and school entrance policy. Outside of my day-to-day assignments, I had the pleasure of observing and shadowing Mr. Merrill in his duties and meetings as an Assistant Principal in a variety of settings and contexts such as non-profit engagement, resource allocation, and professional development. These meetings gave me the opportunity to see what it is like to be a school administrator in a truly athletic setting and the skills, mannerisms, and deliberative skills that I will forever hold on to. ”
