Kamille leads Flamboyan’s work in building relationships with community partners across Washington, DC to ensure that schools have access to services to support family needs, and also manages a portfolio of DC district and charter schools to support Flamboyan’s goal of ensuring that every public school family in DC experiences effective family engagement throughout their children’s educational experience from Pre-K through high school.

Kamille wholeheartedly believes that education is the gateway to opportunity. She dedicates her time and career to ensuring all children feel empowered to direct their own future.

Kamille began her career in education as a Teach For America corps member teaching second grade at an all-girls charter school in Southeast, Washington, D.C. In this role, Kamille strategized and developed innovative ways to form trusting relationships and academic partnerships with families, which yielded student success. Kamille also served as grade-level lead, reading assessment coach, and family engagement teacher lead. After leaving the classroom, Kamille joined the IMPACT team at the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS). As a policy coordinator, Kamille developed and implemented process improvements to increase the efficiency of IMPACT, the performance-based evaluation system for DCPS employees. Before joining Flamboyan as a full-time employee, Kamille served as a Flamboyan teacher trainer, co-facilitating a professional development series for charter school teachers. Kamille holds a Bachelor of Arts in Government and a Master of Public Policy from the University of Virginia.
