KDSL will interview Amina Brown of NFTE or Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship on 16 April 2013 at 12noon EST.

As a former District of Columbia Public School English and Journalism teacher at both the junior high and high school level, Ms. Amina Brown is familiar with the challenges that at-risk, neglected and abandon youth confront daily.  First hand encounters with children orphaned by AIDS, drug addiction, and stories of struggle through extreme poverty--often under a pervasive and unremitting threat of lethal violence serve as motivation for Ms. Brown’s commitment to education reform and innovative curriculum design. Ms. Brown is currently the Senior Director of Programs for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship where she is charged with helping NFTE DC fulfill its potential as a force for change by building an ever-expanding and increasingly academic strategy leveraging private and public sectors committed to educational excellence and opportunity for all children. 

Prior to her experience at NFTE, Ms. Brown was an Instructional Performance Coach at Anacostia Senior High School as part of DCPS’ School Turnaround and Restructuring Effort.  Prior to this experience, Ms. Brown was a District Literacy Coach/Reading Intervention Program Manager for District of Columbia Public schools via the Office of Curriculum and Instruction. 

Ms. Brown holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Syracuse University, and Master’s degree from the American University in Journalism and Public Affairs and is certified in International Baccalaureate World Literature; Advanced Placement Language and Composition and Adult Literacy. Ms. Brown is a native Washingtonian.
