Previous work experience: Tatiana has worked in education spaces across five continents. In addition to teaching kindergarten and high school, she has worked in district and ministry offices, innovative non-profits, and powerful community-based organizations. Most recently, she served as the evaluation lead on a research project at the University of Cambridge in England, where she conducted research around implementing post-compulsory mathematics curricula. Before joining the PHA family, Tatiana was a Learning Lab Fellow at Harvard's Bok Center for Teaching and Learning.
Hobbies and interests: Outside of nerding out to data and thinking deeply about educational policy and practice, Tatiana enjoys cooking and experimenting with new flavors and ingredients, traveling to diverse destinations (visited over 40 countries thus far), and watching various shows, films, and documentaries. Tatiana also enjoys volunteering and being part of community-building efforts, including teaching English to recently arrived immigrants and refugees through the International Institute of New England and organizing with the beautiful people of Massachusetts around the Mass Citizens Congress on Poverty.
Why did you choose to work at Prospect Hill Academy?: Tatiana is excited to join the PHA family to ask big and challenging questions about the choices we make across our campuses and see how data can help us find answers to help steer our work forward. She is excited to use her research and analysis skills to support teachers in accessing data and research that will enable them to improve their craft. She loves that PHA believes in each of our students and employs restorative practices to empower each of us to learn not only academics, but also responsible citizenship.
