Hi! I'm Salimah, a former Baltimore City Public Schools special education teacher and a current community member, volunteer, and education consultant. I live in the neighborhood of Pen Lucy in the York Road Corridor. I am running for one of the two elected seats on the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners because I believe in the power of communities – and especially students – to use their voice to design systems that work for them. I want to ensure that all of those voices are heard when decisions about education are made by the School Board.
