“Education has always been at the forefront with my family. In order to honor my late grandmother and other elders who were never afforded the opportunity to receive a formal education, I’ve become committed to supporting efforts to provide quality education to all children despite their societal circumstances. At SRC, I am able to work toward a mission that closely aligns with my own personal mission: uplifting the importance of early education and access through a racial equity and social justice lens. SRC allows me to advocate and contribute to work that prioritizes the success of children who look a lot like me and my family.”
Aisha’s pensive work style and reflective nature allow her to ask relevant questions, contributing to the SRC team’s gap detection and problem-solving. When others are moving quickly, Aisha has the ability to stop and reflect to ensure decisions are thoughtful and intentional.
Aisha has expertise in quantitative and qualitative data collection and management. She also has extensive experience in various early childhood assessment and observation tools, including certifications in CLASS (Infant, Toddler, and PreK) and ITERS-R. At SRC, Aisha supports the management of state and national data collection projects and manages the reliability and fidelity of data collection teams.
Aisha has over 10 years of experience in education. She began her career as a Research Assistant in Washington, DC. Prior to SRC, Aisha worked as an Assistant Director at Wonders Early Learning in Maryland. She holds a Master in Education Policy from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Sociology from Temple University.
