Adam Jack Davis
Why did you choose NYU Wagner for graduate school?
I wanted to gain practical skills to generate and evaluate policy solutions to problems facing our society. At Wagner I could learn these from accomplished professors and dedicated classmates.
Can you tell us a bit about your job responsibilities?
I work with equity-aligned New York teachers to advocate for education policy and practice changes on the district, state and federal levels, and support educators in becoming more active leaders in the district. I do this by supporting teacher participation in education-decision making processes, facilitating teacher-led design and implementation of issue-based advocacy campaigns, managing media relations, and developing and maintaining external partnerships and coalitions.
What impact do you hope to make through your career?
Using the skills and relationships I built at Wagner, I want to make sure that teachers have a leading voice in the policies that impact them and their kids.
