After spending six hours sitting on the grassy shoulder of I-95 with my cat and a broken down moving truck, I arrived in Henrico.
I moved here last week from Sarasota, Florida to take on this role of educational reporter for the Henrico Citizen. I will be covering a wide variety of educational topics, with a particular focus on educational equity, through the lenses of race, geography, social class and economy, among others.
I was born and raised in Florida – a sunny place for shady people, as they say. I am already impressed with the warmth and hospitality of Henrico, and look forward to building a relationship with the community. I am a member of the body with Report for America, a national service program that places journalists in local newsrooms to report on outsourced issues and communities.
When I’m not writing you can find me rollerblading the Virginia Capital Trail for my next online marathon, doing yoga, or playing with my pussy Mimi.
I have covered crime, courts and local politics in Southwest Florida, but reporting on education is my passion because I believe it is one of the most important moments of the topicality.
I love reporting on education – dissecting funding formulas, attending classroom classes and enthusiastically explaining to my stunned roommate the political machinations at play at a school board meeting.
I believe the most meaningful stories don’t come from monthly meetings, but from discussions with those at the heart of education: students, parents and teachers. That’s why I want to get to know you all and hear your stories. Please contact me with your stories, tips or just to say “hello”. I can be reached at [email protected] or you can find me on twitter @ AnnaBryson18.
