Christina Horner is a senior associate with the Great Schools Partnership. A large portion of Christina’s educational career has been dedicated to equity and social justice for underserved communities. For decades, she has been a part of one of the country’s longest running, voluntary desegregation programs where she has held a myriad of roles: student, bus monitor, secretary, teacher, board chair, and central-office administrator. She worked throughout New England as a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) implementation specialist, helping school teams implement a set of principles for curriculum development that give all students equal opportunities to learn. Currently, she is the co-president of World of Wellesley, a non-profit organization committed to working collaboratively with other institutions and organizations to host events, projects, and programs that create an anti-racist community where diversity, equity, and inclusion are fully embraced. Several years ago, she was appointed by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to serve on the Racial Imbalance Advisory Council. In this capacity, she works with other members of the council to advise the Commissioner of Education and the Board of Education on an array of issues pertinent to the development and maintenance of school desegregation or integration in public schools within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Christina earned a B.A. in business from Boston College and an M.S. in education from Lesley University. In her free time, Christina enjoys traveling, walking, and bike riding. She lives in Wellesley, Massachusetts, with her husband, twin sons, and daughter.
