I have 20 years of educational experience, with 6 years currently at the Webb Schools. For seven years, I led an exchange program with a school in Paris while teaching at the Park School of Baltimore.
I was born and raised in Senegal, came to the US for Graduate school in the summer of 2001.

I grew up in a house full of boys (enough to field a soccer team and have subs) but I was raised by women (older sisters, mothers, and grandmother). While they stayed home and made sure we were fed, schooled, and taken care of, we got to stay in school and play. They are the main reason why a young village boy like me made a better life for himself and became a man who is now able to make cross-cultural connections.
