Helping people gain knowledge has been a running theme through data scientist, Jamila Holt’s, career. She started her professional journey as an educator over 13 years ago in Texas and finished as a Teacher Leader in the District of Columbia Public Schools.
Jamila recalls a time she co-led a project on brain-based learning that explored how students learn differently. She instructed teachers on how to use these techniques and incorporate them into their practice. “I was very happy to see these educators excited to implement what they learned,” she said.
