Deidra Bailey

Assistant Principal

I hold a B.A. in Government and International Politics as well as a M.Ed in Special Education from George Mason University. I am also a 2009 Teach For America corps member in the DC Region. For the past five years, I have taught special education at Anacostia Senior High School in Southeast Washington, DC. During my time at Anacostia I taught in both an inclusion algebra 1 classroom as well as humanities for students with emotional disabilities in a self-contained setting. I want to see growth in my student both in and outside of the classroom. I am extremely passionate about social justice and service. In my spare time I volunteer by serving as a member of the regional organizing strategy team for Leadership for Education Equity (LEE). The work I do with LEE focuses on ensuring education equality throughout the various wards of the city.

While I am only fluent in English, I studied both Spanish and French in high school and college, respectively.

I cannot express enough my excitement to be apart of the DCI team. The mission and values of DCI are in line with my own values and views on the world. I am so excited to be a part of the innovation and cultural immersion that is DC International School.
