Deidra Bailey

High School Principal

I began my career in education as a 2009 Teach For America (TFA) corps member in the DC Region. After spending five years at Anacostia Senior High School in Southeast DC, teaching special education and math I joined the staff at DC International School (DCI) as a founding teacher. During my teaching time at DCI, I supported students in math and supported students with disabilities in grades 6 - 8. In fall of 2016, I had the pleasure of being our first High School Assistant Principal for our founding Class on 2020. In the fall of 2018, I become the DCI High School Principal. Outside of DCI, I have served as both a Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness Facilitator and a Curriculum Specialist for Teach For America Summer Institute, supporting the development of first year teachers. I have B.A. in Government and International Politics and a M.Ed in Special Education, both from George Mason University - Go Patriots!.
