Biography of De'Shawn Washington

My name is De'Shawn Washington and I am a third grade teacher here at YA. I graduated with my Masters in Elementary Education in May 2018 and completed my student teaching experience in Boston Public Schools. I also volunteer as a Big Brother for the Big Brother Big Sister Massachusetts Bay organization were I mentor a "Little" through social engagement, bonding, and academics. I am excited to begin my career in YA as I have the opportunity to work in an urban community and impact social justice through academic excellence to maximize learning potential of all students. I look forward to be apart of the change in YA and impact academic enrichment of our students.
