As an intern, Angelique is excited to jump in and learn the intricacies of the technical assistance team’s day-to-day functions. Typically found scouring the web for innovative and inclusive teaching techniques or the latest policy pushes in the education world, she is ready to learn what happens behind the scenes on the local, state, and federal levels.
Currently, Angelique is a doctoral student in the Applied Developmental Psychology program at George Mason University. There she studies the effects of environmental influences, such as culture and socioeconomic status, and the academic outcomes of minority and underrepresented populations. She has examined the long-term academic outcomes of minority children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in pre-K and is currently working
on projects that focus on topics such as girls in STEM and the generalized outcomes of students in special education. Her ultimate goal is to create equitable educational opportunities for all children through research and policy.
In her down time, she can be found listening to any of NPR’s latest podcasts, surfing Pinterest for DIY home décor projects, plotting her next adventure, or reading a good book! She is most happy when visiting her family, enjoying new art exhibits in downtown D.C. with her fiancé, or catching up with her friends over brunch.
