Carissa Moorehead is the Assistant Principal at KIPP Academy Chicago

“I believe that the Surge experience will grant me the development needed to enhance my impact as a Black woman in educational leadership. Our youth deserve individuals who are constantly pressing toward transformative change. They deserve humble leaders who are committed, and who will never stop learning how to best serve them. No matter how far I get in my career, I am forever a student to my children. I believe contributing humility, curiosity, and passion to this experience will help me take in all that Surge has to offer.”
