Carmen Davis

Aspiring Principal Fellow/Team 3 Specialist

Carmen Davis, a Knowles Science Teaching Foundation Senior Fellow, has returned to the organization to work with Teaching Fellows in the final phase of the Fellowship. Davis—originally from Memphis, Tenn.—knew from a very early age she wanted to devote her life to educating children. Her philosophy of education centers on helping students in urban schools develop as independent thinkers who will be able to question the world around them, thrive in a global society, and take risks. As a classroom teacher in Boston Public Schools, Davis lived out this philosophy on a daily basis. She became interested in teacher leadership to learn more about her teaching and to work with other teachers to design and implement meaningful learning tasks. At Urban Science Academy, Davis served as facilitator for Instructional Rounds, co-leader of the Instructional Leadership Team and chair of the mathematics department. Her outstanding efforts in the classroom were recognized in June 2013, when she was named a Boston Public Schools Educator of the Year. Davis has since transitioned out of the classroom, serving in the role of Director of Instruction of Math and Science for two years, where she worked on cultivating a culture where powerful teaching and learning were the central focus of all collaborative time in order to improve student outcomes. Most recently, Davis was selected as an Aspiring Principal Fellow in the Lynch Leadership Academy at Boston College. During the 2015–2016 academic year, Davis will complete her Principal Residency at the Mozart Elementary School in Boston, Mass.
